I see two alternatives:
- either the fact that transform_iterator uses boost::result_of is
removed from the release branch
- or the release branch is fixed so that the feature is not buggy.

Shipping new features that do not work is a bit silly.
In this particular case, the fix seems trivial, so why not just merge it
on the release branch?
