To repeat, I would like these to stay in boost (and hopefully one day
migrate into std). Nobody objected during the formal review period of Bind.
I don't see a reason for different libraries to use different ref's with the
I'd like boost::ref used, for instance, in a future boost <algorithm>
replacement that allows
for_each(first, last, ref(f));
to avoid the copy of 'f', making it possible for function objects with state
to be used.
