There's documentation, right?

Could anything outside of Boost internals have a use for "result_of"?

Have other people looked at it? (You could have missed something and not
realize it.)

Didn't we have an incident at the last release where some "innoncent" code
was just plunked in at the last minute and broke a lot of stuff during
testing? Let's not do that again.

Maybe it can go under a quick-review.
