Except Boost.Phoenix isn't as expressive as "real" C++, is it? E.g.,
local variables are somewhat clumsy (opinion) in the current incarnation
of Boost.Phoenix.

Also, it seems reasonable to implement BOOST_LOCAL_FUNCTION in terms of
lambdas if they exist, but perhaps one would want to use local functions
on non-lambda-enabled compilers.
