Well, I'll ask again because ...

Those warning are the results of a higher compiler warning level. We
use -Wextra to catch those unused parameters. Adding this flag to the
requirements of the Boost.Python testsuite flagged the warning in a
_lot_ of tests. And it discovered much more unused parameters.
"unused_python.diff" contains a patch which removes those and
adds "-Wextra" to the gcc compiler flags.
I don't now if gcc versions < 4.x support this, older versions might
only support the less descriptive "-W" option.

And I have "fixed" those annoying warnings about missing virtual
destructors, too.
Please find "virtual_destructor.diff" attached.

Ok to commit ?
