    Well... It depends on what you mean.

    Some warnings, for example with an unclean conversion of a string to a number, or use of uninitialized value, depends on your data, and when you're parsing data, the structure of that data may change over time, because after a year, people that entered the data may have changed some conventions. That way, you may suddenly start to get warnings where you never got them before. And more often than not, that is a reliable indication that things have gone wrong.
