there are boost::enable_if and boost::unit_test::decorator::enable_if, which
is pulled into boost::unit_test.

it breaks usage of enable_if because the compiler cannot figure out, which
enable_if to use:

namespace boost { namespace mpl {
template <class T>
struct lambda<
  , typename enable_if<
        parameter::aux::is_name_tag<T>, parameter::aux::lambda_tag

maybe it is a bug in boost.test, but it can be worked around in
boost.parameter and boost.fusion by specifying the full name boost::enable_if.
