The motivation being that a developer could still see warnings by
#defining BOOST_NO_GCC_SYSTEM_HEADER while (by default) hiding
warnings for users of the library?
That seems useful.
But redundant. It's already built into gcc to do this. If you just have
the pragma and then build with -Wsystem-headers it turns the warnings back
on. No sense in reinventing the wheel.
