This is not a bogus warning, it often catches real problems in the code.
Just because in your case, the destructor does not need to be virtual,
I should not be forced to globally disable an otherwise good warning.

And what exact problem will arise if there's virtual specifier added
when compiling for gcc? Or it will just spoil the purity of design?
