Comment (by neilgroves):

 I've found this to be a general problem which has a scope across many of
 our Boost libraries. Having the definition in
 boost/concept/detail/general.hpp is not sufficient. There are cases in
 Boost.Tuple, Boost.Bind and my Boost.Range library. I would love to be
 tackling and removing these annoying warnings, but I would like to avoid
 duplicating the unused attribute declaration. I am currently duplicating
 the attribute unused idiom in Boost.Range and attempting to ignore the
 noise from these warnings from other libraries.

 I would be happy to be assigned this defect and sort this problem out if
 this helps.
