My $.02 says to leave the destructor non-virtual across the board and
I sell -Wno-non-vitual-dtor to my QA group. Otherwise some embedded
device will show up that favors non-virtual and I'll be the one asking
you to put it back so our gcc-based cross-compilers can use it. ;)

That and the threat of a #define. %-P
