This is great! I've already gotten a ton of mileage out of what was
previously in the sandbox, and it's great that move-assigning from
temporaries now works (ifiuc).

One small thing: It would be nice if boost::is_movable could be used as
an MPL metafunction, i.e., that it have a nested type typedef. For example

template<class T>
class is_movable
     static const bool value = ...;
     typedef boost::integral_constant< value > type;

This need had come up for me before; I can dig up some context if desired.
