           Summary: vbnc: Should warn when compiling with default Option
                    Strict Off
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: 1.9.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Basic
        AssignedTo: rkvinge at novell.com

When using "Option Strict Off" or "/optionstrict-" vbnc warns: "Warning: Option
Strict Off will probably fail."

However the *default* is Strict Off, and *no* warning is produced then.

It would be helpful for the users if the warning is produced in any situation
where option_strict=false.  That of course can be a different value for each
input file.  But just log a warning the first time a file has
option_strict=false in effect?

(Also since Option Strict Off "will probably fail" wouldn't it be better if the
default was "On"?  That's the opposite of MSFT, but will produce less problems
in vbnc that option_strict=off).
