If you wanted to open a ticket, it would be to request the use of
unchecked_uninitialized_fill_n on MSVC>=8. This avoids the warning.
The phrase "non-standard Microsoft extension" is like a red rag to a
bull to many developers though, so it may not be acted upon.

Personally I'd love to not have to make the trade-off between using
Boost libraries and being able to leave certain occasionally useful
warnings on, but it is not possible certainly now and perhaps never.
