The biggest problem with that is that Boost.Lambda's implementation is
in large part obsoleted by the new stuff Joel de Guzman and friends are
doing with Phoenix-2. It is supposed to form the basis of a
Boost.Lambda rewrite. I don't know the details of what's there, but I
imagine a good bit of Boost.Lambda is old technology for which better
solutions exist today.

That's fine for the other talk (the one on metaprogramming), but the
book isn't about "inside the Boost libraries."
