But you should want notices. Just saying.

Speficially, running WP_DEBUG is pretty much mandatory for any core

Also true.

in all kinds of ways. The process of declaring/checking your variables

before use leads you to avoid a lot of mysterious and rare bugs down the

line, and helps you clean up your code in the process.
