This is what I was thinking. Oddly enough, while I have several
libraries that use boost::any, it is not used that much in the boost
library itself, and it may be reasonable to change any library code to
support the tighter scope of the explicit ctor. It would mean that
library code would have to code as if the ctor were explicit, but users
could use it either way (so long as the use is consistent).
