Phoenix is lazy per-se, so imperative names are perfectly OK for that

For some general utility I'd prefer to emphasize the laziness. So what's
wrong with 'factory' in the first place?

Anyway, can those Phoenix tools be used as standard function objects
(with support for 'boost::result_of')?

If so, it's probably not worth the trouble writing something new...
