I've merged fixes from trunk for Boost.Parameter
(boost/parameter/preprocessor.hpp and boost/parameter/aux_/cast.hpp). Fixes
allow to access the parameter type tag::x::_ within other parameter
declarations (this is a key feature of Boost.Parameter which was broken in
1.50.0 Beta 1).

I've tested the merged release branch locally on MSVC 8.0, GCC 4.5.3 with
and without C++11 features (-std=c++0x). All Boost.Parameter tests passed
locally. I'll be monitoring the release regression tests closely.

NOTE: I noticed that more tests were added to Boost.Parameter in trunk. I
did not merge the new tests into release because changing the tests would
changed the pass/fail criteria in the middle of the release (not just bug
fixes). IMO, the new Boost.Parameter tests should be merged into 1.51.
