fusion::reverse_fold takes the sequence as the first argument.
In contrast, the haskell function takes the sequence as the last
argument. That wouldn't be a big problem except if you plan to
provide a variadic template:

version of these functions. The variadic template spec
requires the parameter pack to be at the end, IOW:

   template<typename Op, typename State0, typename... Values)
   foldl(Op,State0,Values&... values);

Which is exactly the way haskell orders the arguments.
I know this is different than the way fusion and mpl do it;
however, if arg packs (e.g. Values&... values) are to be used,
then I don't see any workaround.
