#define BOOST_AUTO_FOREACH( x, y )\
BOOST_FOREACH( BOOST_TYPEOF( *boost::begin(y) ) x, y )
There are some problems with this. There is no way to specify that you
want to iterate by reference instead of by value. Also, if y has a
dependent type, we'd need to use BOOST_TYPEOF_TPL instead, giving rise
to the blasphemous BOOST_AUTO_FOREACH_TPL. Yuk. Finally, I do NOT want
to create a dependency between foreach.hpp and typeof.hpp.
Considering the problems, I'm inclined to leave it out. You're certainly
free to define your own.
