Though MCL final will support this way of forward referencing a function
definition, 2.0b1 does not. Even 2.0 final will only support this in
the file compiler. Evaluating it in the Listener does nothing.

There is a completely proper way to do this most unproper thing. Use the
Common Lisp condition system:

(defmacro without-warnings (&body body)
  `(handler-bind ((warning
                   #'(lambda (condition)
                       (muffle-warning condition))))

If you want to ignore only compiler warnings, you need to use an
internal condition type:

(defmacro without-compiler-warnings (&body body)
  `(handler-bind ((ccl::compiler-warning
                   #'(lambda (condition)
                       (muffle-warning condition))))
