Only subsequent declarations: and by using #pragma warning(push/pop) you can
scope the warning disabling to a specific section of code, while leaving the
warning turned on for everyone else (if they want it).

No the macros are a global setting - the only reliable way to set these is
globally on the command line, you can't turn them on and off for specific
sections of code.
