Seems I correctly remembered the wrong version :-/. Thanks for this
catch (or maybe it was a throw?)

We should check that Fusion properly adds references, as the previous
result computation protocol used const/non-const L-Value types without

Looking into the Boost.ResultOf docs reveals that all three versions of
this text are outdated. Seems a good idea to fix it, too.
