FWIW, both are silenced now.

Version 8.0 appeared a little smarter about the possible usage of an
uninitialized variable (though I'm a suspicious guy and wouldn't be
surprised to know that they have just special-cased it during their
internal tests with boost code) but warned about constant conditional
expressions anyway (something that Borland users have probably learned
to turn a blind eye to).
The "fix" is in the head only. Shout out very very loud if you want it
in the RC_1_34_0 branch too :-)
