I'd encourage people to not vote against the lambda library simply because
there are "promising alternatives". If these alternatives are for real,
then the authors can submit those libraries to Boost when they are ready.
If they end up being better, then LL can be deprecated, or they can
coexist and users can make up their own mind.

Further, many of the differences between lambda and Pheonix look like
trivial syntactic differences to me, brackets instead of parenthesis, etc.
With previous library reviews, the review manager has made suggestions as
to which of such options were more preferable, and then the library author
took this into account in the final polish-up before checkin. I don't see
why that approach shouldn't be also taken in this situation.
