I also think that we need standardized feature for todo/fixme in language, 
so when you got one's code you can have all needed warnings the creator 
wants to produce.
I.e. probably not some directive, but some kind of.. special comment? So 
XCode/any 3rd party tools/IDE will know about this standardized format and 
produce/show user-created 'warnings' instead of compiler(as core team 
against such warnings in compiler)
