The question needs to be reformulated. We already have a policy to
clear warnings in the builds of compiled libraries, and had a sprint a
few years ago that eliminated most or maybe even all of those
Where I'm having a problem is headers like lexical_cast.hpp (and its
implementation headers) that shadow "n", "str", and "ch". What do we
tell users who don't want to turn the warnings off?
