Yes, the OP talked about 7.1 though.

Makes sense. Unfortunately in code targeted at so many compilers as
boost code is filtering the necessary #pragmas gets quite annoying,
besides decreasing readability (unless you filter on the whole source
file, which decreases reliability).
I'll have a look this morning and see if it also emits warning for
constant if expressions etc (I'm pretty sure 7.1 does). But I guess
this can't go in the 1.34 branch at this stage (not that I think we
are close to release, but I don't want to further move away from it
