Why is forwarding constructor specific? Shouldn't it work with any function?

boost::forward_constructor to boost::forward.

I suppose there is an issue to forward references vs const references.
Is that why it's limited to constructors?

Those containers probably have little to do in the interprocess namespace.
Maybe it's time to make them first-class boost citizens?

The documentation doesn't really mention what are the limits of the
emulation, if there are any.
