We're talking about functional objects here, right? Like a plus() object
that uses Boost.Typeof to deduce its result type. Then I agree with Joel
that Fusion is the wrong place for that. I have a start on such a
collection of numeric functional objects here:
I decided for my work that the right place was to make it a sub-library
of boost/numeric and put it in boost/numeric/functional.hpp. I am hoping
to one day have the time to flesh this out and submit it to Boost.
