Subject: [boost] Phoenix documentation problems

A few things I just noticed:


     "Bind is no completely compatible with Boost.Bind"

   There's a letter missing after "no," the choice of which ("w" or "t")
   can invert the meaning of the sentence! It wasn't until I got to
   that I realized it was "w"!

2. On the same page I think there's a messed up cross-reference, because

      "phoenix.modules.function phoenix::function"

   Doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

3. On libs/phoenix/doc/html/phoenix/starter_kit/values.html I see:

      Confused? val(3) is a unary function, you say? Yes it is.

   No, it isn't. val is a unary function. val(3) *invokes* a unary

4. libs/phoenix/doc/html/phoenix/starter_kit/lazy_operators.html says


   is an error but it gives only a confusing partial explanation that
   doesn't seem to follow the rules above it. operator[] looks as much
   like a binary operation as operator*; the difference is that the
   former must be a member.

5. Can we please, finally, *deprecate* Boost.Lambda and put a sign on
   its docs directing people to look at Phoenix?
