I think you are missing my point. I've already addressed this locally
(by adding the warning suppression option to our compiler configuration,
and then filing a bug report against that configuration to remind us to
change it back when the underlying problem is addressed).
However, do you (and the rest of the boost community) really want to
release this in it's current state? Should every development group using
gcc and the serialization library have to locally work around this? How
many queries about this are there going to be on the boost mailing lists
between now and a release that addresses this? And how many potential
users of the library are going to try it, get large numbers of warnings,
and go elsewhere?
If it's a matter of finding time to write the patch, I'll volunteer to
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, david.abrahams at rcn.com, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
