<nidx>defaulting mechanism, warning</nidx>
Have the compiler warn/inform you where in your source the Haskell
defaulting mechanism for numeric types kicks in. This is useful
information when converting code from a context that assumed one
default into one with another, e.g., the 'default default' for Haskell
1.4 caused the otherwise unconstrained value <tt>1</tt> to be given
the type <tt>Int</tt>, whereas Haskell 98 defaults it to
<tt>Integer</tt>. This may lead to differences in performance and
behaviour, hence the usefulness of being non-silent about this.
This warning is off by default.
