Agreed, I think we shouldn't wrap this in preprocessor conditionals it since
it's entirely possible it will end up used elsewhere and we'll end up with a
mess of #ifdefs.

Let's just add __maybe_unused, since it seems like what we want in this
scenario -- it avoids new users having to enter preprocessor madness, while
also not polluting the build output.

Once you've done that, I'll send over my ack. :-)
