And it's really frustrating too. I use optional from the trunk for
simple things in a small test program, and get no warnings at all even
in programs where I do stupid programming tricks to get gcc to winge
about strict aliasing on other lines so that I know I have the compile
options right. I can't get gcc to complain about optional in my program
at all, even trying different values of -Wstrict-aliasing, but building
boost-trunk I see it.
