I think that one was reported to clang before -- to make it stop
complaining about unused functions defined in headers, and that
they agreed that it was a clang bug. Maybe an option would be to
disable the warning if compiling with clang. If it's not a too-ugly
patch, maybe we could include it.

Fixing actual bugs is always nice and welcome.
[ Personally, I'd think it great if for each bug clang caught that
gcc didn't, that a bug was filed against gcc. ]
