That was a change in the forwarding code. Since perfect forwarding can't
be achieved in C++03, previously all parameters were taken as const T &
and then unconsted, this means that sometimes incorrect overload was
taken (non-const was preferred). Since usually all constructor
parameters are non-const this was changed. I don't plan to change this
behaviour, because that would break again code for current users.
