Developer A has written code that compiles cleanly with MSVC /W4. Developer
B fixes an issue in this code and the result compiles cleanly with
g++ -Wall, but happens to introduce a warning under MSVC. (Or Sun C++, for
that matter.)

(Incidentally, both developers have built at a reasonably high warning level
and have seen no warnings.)
