I would not call this "nicely", that's more "klugely". What if I happen to
write a library which used boost::signals in headers? Do you suggest me to

  class My {
        boost::BOOST_SIGNALS_NAMESPACE::signal<.....> on_whatever;

? Do you mean that the current situation is optimal, and any attempts on
improving it are just wasting time?
