Does GCC support a way to switch warnings on and off from within the
code? IIRC Visual C++ has something like that. If so the serialization
headers could just suppress that warning.

I agree (I use serialization, gcc, and -Wall). If the previous release
didn't complain then it should be treated as a regression.
