The unused 'self' variable warning doesn't show up in the VC compiler. (at least not at it's current warnings lvl). Adding code like UNUSED(x) would be extremely strange imho since windows doesn't even generate this warning.

Mingw gcc will throw all kinds of "Warning: deprecated use of #pragma" 
warnings if you use pragma.  I think finding and implementing the 
necessary compiler flags for gcc and msvc (and perhaps the irix compiler 
if that's still supported) would be the best thing to do.
