Hello Alexei,

I could avoid these warnings in Boost.MultiIndex, but I'm not sure this
is the right thing to do, as the problem is really Boost-wide and should
be considered, IMHO, from a global point of view: any class using
boost::noncopyable will make MSVC level 4 shout, try the following
for instance:

#include <boost/noncopyable.hpp>

class foo:boost::noncopyable

In my opinion, these warnings can hardly uncover any real programming
error (which is what the warnings are meant for in the first place), so
it would be perfectly safe to just pragma them away globally in your

She is, though she doesn't care much about C++ :)
