So, let's get concrete:

If I am writing a generic algorithm to work on "pow-able" numbers, how do I
call boost::special_functions::pow() (qualified or unqualified)?

If I am a non-boost library writer making a numeric type that should work
with the above generic algorithm, how do I define pow() for my type?
