It *may* be found by ADL. Consider the following:

#include <boost/array.hpp>
#include <boost/fusion/container/vector.hpp>
#include <boost/fusion/sequence/intrinsic/end.hpp>
#include <boost/fusion/adapted/array.hpp>
#include <boost/range.hpp>

int main()
     boost::array<boost::fusion::vector<>, 42> foo;
     begin(foo); // ambiguous, boost::begin or boost::fusion::begin

Namespaces of template arguments are also considered for ADL. (Yes,
that's a terrible rule -- no idea why it was coined)
