Yes, there are some warnings at level 4 which are very often triggered
by GIL. Common ones are: conditional expression is constant,
assignment operator couldn't be generated due to reference member, and
more when compiled in 64-bit. <rant>The second is particularly
annoying -- if I wanted to be able to copy-assign, I wouldn't have put
a reference member in there!</rant> I tend to suppress those

Good luck,
