Too bad about that limitation.  However, my vote is to put in the
/nowarn's anyway for these two. Right now they are just telling us that
the class is not done, which the author already knows.  To others it's
just confusing noise.

And, yes...I think the word you are looking for is "Robustification" ;)

From the mcs directory just do this:

On my box I get 23 Failures and 16 Errors.  Not a pretty sight.

The problems are clustered around just a few classes it looks like, so
maybe the problem is not very broad-based.  I'll be you can fix 'em all
in just a few minutes :)
