Not boost/config.hpp. This isn't a configuration tool. More likely

But jump back a bit. I missed something. What is wrong with the
traditional style of coding for unused parameters, and variables?

void foo ( MyClass const& /*c*/ )
    // int a ;
    // float b ;

Is the issue that a and b are in fact use in some control paths, and so
can't just be commented out (or outright removed), yet the compiler is
warning because they aren't used in all control paths?
