When did codegear begin decltype support? The current codegear config
header configures Boost to assume decltype for all versions, which
seems suspect.

If codegear supports decltype well enough to configure Boost to use
it, but not well enough to enable a C++0x-style result_of
implementation, we could revert to the old result_of for the specific
codegear version until someone finds a workaround or codegear's C++0x
support matures. I don't have access to codegear myself.
