In general, MPL works around this GCC quirk by putting its "data types"
into an unrelated namespace ('mpl_') and bringing them into 'boost::mpl'
through a 'using' directive/declarations. This breaks the ADL link
between the data types and the algorithms, resolving the issue for many
typical use cases.
The reason why the above fails is that currently the workaround is not
applied to MPL sequences (it was planned, but never implemented). I'll
look into fixing this for the next release.
