OOPS. The 2nd solution of redefining apply to contain

   typedef apply_wrap<,,> type;

instead of inheriting apply_wrap would obviously break existing code.
However, to get something similar to the apply<op,_1,deref<_2> > in:

to work, maybe using eval_apply (defined as the app2ok in the vault)
would work? Then instead of:

   apply<op,_1,deref<_2> >


   eval_apply<op,_1,deref<_2> >::type

as shown in the vault code.

The name eval_apply is modeled after eval_if.

Am I missing something or should I file a trac ticket on this?

Note, the ticket woul only say there's a bug in fold.html.
It would say nothing about bugs in fold.hpp.
