Just an update on this issue...

BOOST_FOREACH has recently received a face-lift, and this customization
point has been renamed. It is now called is_lightweight_proxy, which
refects the fact that this optimization can only legally be applied for
proxies (like iterator pairs).

In addition, there is a is_noncopyable customization point, which is
needed to prevent BOOST_FOREACH from generating code that won't compile.
(If your type derives from boost::noncopyable, is_noncopyable defaults
to true; it's false otherwise.)

Finally, this is now part of BOOST_FOREACH's documentation. Huzzah.
