I don't remember. We should conservatively assume that 4.0 and below need
the workaround. I don't object to us switching to "real" placeholders for
4.1 and later based on your report.

Yes, this is one of the reasons why boost::bind( ... ) == 5 is valid, but _1
== 5 is not (the other being that given placeholder interoperability, both
Bind and Lambda will claim _1 == 5 as their own.)
