And it won't compile *with* the const? I don't think the const'ness of
the member function affects the const'ness of the referent of to_overwrite.

That said, it does look the documentation for boost::fusion::for_each
(indicating that F is received by value) contradicts the source code
(where F is received by reference-to-const)...
