Just two points (anyhow, please wait for someone who is more familiar with the
latest Boost directions to weigh in):

     * I think it's safer to disable/re-enable the warning as "locally"
       as possible; in this case, in msvc_prefix.hpp and msvc_suffix.hpp.

     * the few times I use VC++, I just disable C4996; I see that Boost
       has a warning_disable.hpp, instead. You might want to look at the
       comments therein.
