None. We've reported this to Microsoft and they have (after much
deliberation) classified it as a bug, but apparently a fix would be
non-trivial and I don't know whether they plan to ever issue one for the
MSVC 8 line.

The warning is harmless, as the wrong specialization is only used in a
return type in an overload that isn't chosen (the only purpose of this
specific specialization is to avoid the warning).
