Yes. Boost.Lambda will go into maintenance mode. It will be deprecated
in favor of Boost.Phoenix but will remain available in parallel for
a long time still for backward compatibility. We will have to assimilate
as much as we can from Lambda, esp. the tests and documentation. Some
years ago, the plan was to eventually assimilate even the name Boost.Lambda.
I'm not sure that's desirable anymore since Phoenix has taken a life of
its own.
