I agree that it would be great from the user's point of view if all of Boost
compiled without warnings, but I'm afraid a no-warnings policy will make the
whack-a-mole game all that much worse. As it stands, some Boost code is
brittle on certain compilers: tweak in one place, and it breaks a compiler;
fix for that compiler and you've broken another compiler.
