Indeed, but it does include the getout

"When all else fails

There are cases where the only sensible solution is to suppress warnings for a given chunk of code: "

and the warnings in question often cannot conveniently be 'cured' by changes to the code (though Steven Watanbe made some

I'd certainly like to see a Boost policy that requires people to make a good effort on getting warning free - but it is certainly a
hassle - sometimes a 'cure' on one platform provokes a warning on another :-((
