It would be a good idea to have a <boost/warnings/push.hpp> and
<boost/warnings/pop.hpp> that would disable then restore common warnings
that occur in boost. You would then have

#include <boost/warnings/push.hpp>
// ...
#include <boost/warnings/pop.hpp>

in the affected Boost headers. This would then keep all the warning
logic in one place, offer a more elegant solution to the VC8 deprecated
function problem and help users of Boost that enable all warnings and
warnings as errors.

This idea was proposed previously, but there wasn't enough interest in
it. If this seems a reasomable solution, I could look at providing an
implementation of these headers with support for the Microsoft, Borland
and Metrowerks compilers as it can be annoying to do:

#pragma warnings ( push )
#pragma warnings ( disable : nnnn ) // disable some warning
#include <boost-header>
#pragma warnings ( pop )

whenever I want to include a boost header.
