I use bcc 5.6.4 and can use bind but not lambda but have just started
using phoenix for simple constructs e.g.

for_each(a.begin(), a.end(),
         phoenix::arg1 = phoenix::arg1 * -1.0);

I'm unsure about the macro. I haven't looked at the
container_traits/sequence_algo mentioned elsewhere in this thread yet.

Its an interesting idea, and I would possibly use it were it accepted
into boost.

One thing that worries me about the inital example is if you forget to
declare i as a reference, then it breaks.

Could the type of the local not be auto-declared? so it becomes

BOOST_FOREACH(i, int_list)

That way, the user doesn't have to remember the & or not.
