Hi Herb,
Hi Dave,

just a quick followup to make sure I understand the problem correctly and can
fix this in V2.

1. The current version of msvc 8.0 requires those two defines in order to
really suppress all warnings.

2. This will be fixed in a future version.

Is that correct?

Is there any estimate of the msvc version in which this will be fixed, so that
I can add appropriate comment to Boost.Build for benefit of users and future
