I think in general a better solution would be to add a member function
to the keyword class template. Maybe:

  template <class F>
  ... lazy(F const& f)

And possibly change the docs to not use Boost.Lambda. We're going to hit
the same problem with the every lambda library. Changing the
implementation is to late for 1.34, but we should probably change the
docs so they don't mention Lambda. The example would become:

  bind(std::plus<std::string>(), ref(s1), ref(s2))

it's unfortunate, but not that bad IMO.
