Seem to solve all problems at once: no confusion anymore for the average
Spirit user and the possibility to fine tune things for special cases.
This BTW reflects the situation, we had in Spirit V1.3, there the rule<>
had the 'non-confusing' semantics and the copyable_rule<> the sematics,
the rule<> have today. One note though: we need to expose the actual
rule semantics through a typedef to allow for meta tricks.
