Not yet. There are still lots of work to do, but that's a high item
in the todo list. One higher priority item is to make it easier to
make conforming fusion sequences. It would be a good idea to do that
first and leverage that for boost::cons. There's also an interesting
use-case that became apparent recently: making arbitrary structs/classes
conforming sequences easily-- as easy as providing a single function.
Pardon me if this is rather sketchy at this point, but imagine
being able to write:

Our user defined struct:

     struct point { float x, float y; };


     fusion::map<keys::x_, keys::y_, float&, float&>
     as_fusion_sequence(point& p)
         return fusion::map_tie<keys::x_, keys::y_>(p.x, p.y);


     point p = { 123.456, 789.012 };
     fusion::for_each(p, std::cout << _1 << std::endl);
