This "unused parameter warning" is much more frequent in
boost::serialization, perhaps Robert has cleand it all in CVS-HEAD.
But applying proposed patch to 1_34 would mean that a dozens of other
lines should be fixed too. That's what I suppose Robert wants to

OTOH I'd really appreciate if boost::serialization would not produce
warnings during compilations of correct code. Some people (like me)
have a warning-free compilation policy, and this library interferes
with that...

I raised this problem before, but it was not resolved:

Should boost users expect a correctly written "hello world" to
compile without warnings?
