a) How do you put a noncopyable object in a container?
b) How do you copy a container with noncopyable elements?
Fusion vector is based on stl vector. Even stl vector requires copy
One possibility is to store your object in a smart pointer or
wrap it in a reference wrapper. Then, the smart pointer and
reference wrapper can be stored in the fusion container.
