yeah, the system_header pragma or the -isystem option are pretty cool if
you know for sure that all warnings can be safely ignored. But when
developing something new, this is rarely the case.

So what I am doing now (seems to work fine):

Most of the time, I compile without -std=c++0x, because most of the
time, I don't use those new features. But there are some rather isolated
classes that use variadic templates for a type-safe communication layer
for postgresql. Those classes are compiled with -std=c++0x.

Thanks and regards,
