I don't know about you, but I just checked the beta and I see
nil_ (with the underscore). See boost/fusion/container/list/cons.hpp

This is silly and nauseating indeed. Again and again, I say it's
not fusion's fault. nil *IS* a perfectly valid C++ identifier.
Still, I gave in to *YOUR* demands for reasons that I do not
really care about.

Now can people stop whining please? If you still see problems,
please provide a patch.
