The most clear example is on the main page,
boost/libs/type_traits/index.html, about half way down starting with the
section, "Transformations Between Types." Pretty much everything there
that summarizes the features has the leading '::' in the "Expression"

Maybe the intent is simply to say that they are in ::boost, but I do not
recall seeing this kind of specification in other boost docs, and mized
with the coding standards it confused me (but obviously that is not a
difficult task).

Cool. BTW, how would you state the differences between using
type_traits and mpl, as Dave suggested in this thread?
