[wp-hackers] PHP notice warnings

WordPress hide PHP notices by default:

from wp-settings.php:
// Change to E_ALL for development/debugging
error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

This promotes writing of bad code both in the core and in plugins.

I understand that turning notices back on will break a lot of plugins, 
but maybe it's worth doing this for the next major version.

having notice turned on helps to catch a lot of problems early in the 
development, and will actually help plugin authors write better plugins

what do you guys think?
