      Description

      We are getting hundreds of warnings right now. Most of these are a result of our transition to 1.5 and deprecated uses of generics. We should still fix these, since producing lots of warnings:

      A) Leads to the perception that our code is of low quality
      B) Can mask warnings that come from real issues.

      I suggest we do two things

      1) Submit a patch or set of patches to clean this up
      2) Change our patch tester to validate that the number of warnings per build did not go up with this patch
