Well, that's annoying. Just had a very quick read up on the issue, and
I think it's okay. The expression is:

    typename boost::remove_reference<
        decltype((boost::declval<Lhs>() oper
            boost::declval<Rhs>() ))>::type result_type;

'oper' is a macro parameter, which is never '.' or '->' (obviously,
given that it wouldn't work). So I don't think it counts as an id or
member expression. 'oper' is '->*' in one case, but I don't think
that's affected? If it is, the 'remove_reference' should help, maybe
it would need to use 'remove_const' as well?

Btw. please can someone with clang from subversion try the test case?
