Boost :

Is there a macro library in Boost for making forwarding
functions (the thing that can only be done perfectly in
C++0x, with decltype, rvalue references and perhaps
parameter packs)? I found myself needing to do that again,
as I worked more on my ideas for integer wrapping, and so I
started making a macro library for it... I have no idea
where I'd look to find if such a thing already existed,
beyond reading the summaries of all the Boost libraries. I
suppose it would be helpful to have a general library in
Boost to do that?

(with all the compiler workarounds, the choice of the user
which workaround to prefer, etc.)

(more generally/irrelevantly, I'm surprised how often Boost
libraries share techniques that ought to be libraries in
themselves. And how poorly commented some of Boost code
is... but there I'm getting way off topic :-P)
