> Daniel looked over the patch and suggested it would be best not to define
the fallback mode by default. Here's the thread:
I said I'd make a patch which follows his suggestion, but that I'd try to
convince him to accept the first patch. I'll reiterate, I think it would
be more surprising to have boost::result_of not work with
compiler-supported lambdas than to have it correctly deduce results that
would have been erroneous using TR1. Even though VC10's std::result_of
didn't work with them either (for example).
