Looks good, so pushed. Thanks for this. 

I did decide afterwards to remove two of the methods that cppcheck said
could be "const" seeing as they were actually empty and nothing called

Do you have an example, it *might* be a false positive because it might
be an overloaded operator that cppcheck doesn't know about, e.g.

sal_Bool bFoo;
if (aAny >>= bFoo)
   //use foo only if Any::operator>>= filled in bFoo successfully
   //cppcheck might think bFoo is used initialized

but in the general case sal_False is probably the right value. i.e. in
the above case I'd do sal_Bool bFoo(sal_False); anyway even if it is a
false positive.
