What is a bug?
Is there any pitfall if `value_at` is the same as `at` under transform_view?

No, when vector<int, int&> is mutable lvalue,
f should be able to access the mutable int.

int --> f::result<f(int&)>
int& --> f::result<f(int&)>

The current deref works like this unless as_vector is used.
It's ok.


     #include <boost/fusion/include/as_vector.hpp>
     #include <boost/fusion/include/transform_view.hpp>
     #include <boost/fusion/include/vector.hpp>
     #include <boost/fusion/include/at.hpp>
     #include <boost/fusion/include/begin.hpp>

     struct identity
         template<class FunCall>
         struct result;

         template<class Fun>
         struct result<Fun(int&)>
             typedef int& type;

         int& operator()(int& i) const
             return i;

     void test()
         // This compiles fine.
         typedef boost::fusion::vector<int, int> from_t;
         from_t from(10, 20);
         boost::fusion::transform_view<from_t, ::identity> v(from, ::identity());
         *boost::fusion::begin(v) = 999;
         BOOST_CHECK(boost::fusion::at_c<0>(from) == 999);

         //boost::fusion::as_vector(v); // error!

Here, as_vector calls value_of. Hence,

int --> f::result<f(int)>

My poor identity doesn't compile.
IMHO, as_vector should be able to return vector<int&, int&>.

Once as_vector intervenes, FunctionObject can't access mutable elements in a tuple.
For example, mutable STL iterator can't be returned from std::string in a tuple.
