It's really ironic to read that you're saying boost are complaining
too much.

Even the Microsoft compiler developers are saying that fixing bugs in
/Za is a very low priority for them because practically nobody uses
it and it's almost useless for Windows development. I don't see why
supporting every oddball compiler option should suddenly become a
priority for us.
