Not at the moment.

Also not at the moment, but that is essentially what I am requesting,
except that I don't want warnings to be treated as /full/ errors
(thereby pausing the compilation and demanding user input) but rather to
simply return a non-zero status (if that what the user wants) that can
then be interpreted by an intelligent wrapper such as TeXworks.  My
suggestion is :

	*TeX --return-non-zero-status-on=<set of keywords>

(where *TeX implies any of eTeX, PdfTeX, XeTeX, etc., and <keywords>
might include "overfull-boxes", "missing-glyphs", etc.)
