Hi Kim,

I don't understand how it works for the second use within one scope:

> boost_scope_exit_args;

If sizeof(boost_scope_exit_args) is equal to sizeof(declared),
the resulting type would be holder<(0<0>::apply_value)>. But I don't
see a global variable apply_value in your patch.

BTW, I modified Steven's code and introduced a bug because
sizeof(declare<sizeof(undeclared)>::apply<0>) does not necessarily
equal to sizeof(declared).
