I assume you mean a significant negative effect. This is to be expected. We need to push the compilers to improve. If we can be more expressive but the compilers don't support it well then the compilers must improve. That's one role that boost serves. New usage shouldn't be expected to work well. We are doing things that no one would think to test because no one has done them before.
