I'd rather spend a few more days thinking of some other solutions. Silently
breaking user code to make some c++11-emulation-for-old-compilers work out
of the box is not good.

Is there a better idea than specializing the boost::swap for ::boost::rv<T>
types and forcing users to write `boost::swap(boost::move(object1),
boost::move(object2));` ?
