So do Boost.Lambda and Phoenix infrustructures, and unification of these
is proposed for the TR1 -

Since the experts on the subject are silent, I thought it's worth to point
out that the Phoenix framework, which is a part of Boost.Spirit
(http://www.boost.org/libs/spirit/phoenix/index.html), is highly
influenced by FC++, so it might be worth looking at it to see how much of
the work can be reused between these two.
