Thanks you *very much* for help here. This issue is pushing me to
convert to 1.32 (which is good- I am doing that NOW). And without help
from everyone who is added thoughts, I would still be in the bicycle
shed. (I still am but I now see the door). :)

Once I get converted and get my code working, I will post to this list a
quick how to on what the resolution to the original question was (this
way other folks can find the solution in the future by searching mail

        It would be nice if boost doc pages pointed to a WIKI or
something for people to add things to the documentation (not officially
added mind you- just ammendums)(similar to how people can comment on
products on for example) .
        I.e. once I get code working on how to deduce return type from a
lambda functor, it would be nice if I could put that info someplace easy
for others to find.
        OR- Is the solution for me to write up a page of documentation
and simply request it be added to the lambda documentation?
        (which raises the issue)- is there any process for this?

Thanks Again Guys.

It is the people that give boost the real "boost" :)
