Well not exactly, because the underscored thingies are formally illegal at
the global scope, and when qualified with a namespace they lose much of
So they'll have to be aliases. This is a case where a BOOST_STRICT macro
would be of use - when it's not defined the libraries would be allowed to
use some not-exactly-legal-but-working-anyway approaches.
As for the typedef names, I think that Lambda is more or less a de-facto
standard at this point so free1_type etc would be fine.
