Yeah, just code that uses a new fusion feature (adapted 'abstract data
types') will be affected.

As the release is finally on its way I do not want to interrupt the
process. I created a track ticket and attached the patch to it.
Version is set to Boost 1.46.0, Milestone is set to Boost 1.47.0.
The compile errors are pretty much straightforward and I guess spirit
users will search the trac tickets first.
I am sorry for the inconveniences.
