It is a part of spirit, for now. It's been proven to be quite stable
for almost 3 years now. We're using it as a base infrastructure for
at least 3 libraries (spirit2, phoenix2, and now, Eric Niebler's xpressive).

See boost/spirit/fusion. Sorry, no docs yet. However, if you know
MPL, you already know fusion. I suggest looking at the test cpp
files. There's a test for each feature. The tests should be
immediately understandable.
