Subject: [boost] [Random] make_variate_ref proposal

I propose adding a make_variate_ref helper function to Random library to
save typing, so I don't have retype the Distribution type twice, and to
help with accidentally forgetting to put "&" in the template parameter.
Something along the lines of:
template<typename Engine, typename Distribution>
class boost::variate_generator<Engine &, Distribution &>
make_variate_ref(Engine & engine, Distribution & dist)
boost::variate_generator<Engine &, Distribution &> variate(engine,
What are your thoughts.
