Boost Lambda which is a "stagnate" library has had no changes in a very
long time. Mostly because the new C++11 Lambdas replace the need for it,
and the original authors spent their time getting that change into the
standard. Should it continue? Who knows. I don't have time to do any work
on it, and the new Phoenix replaces a lot of what it does, although not
all. Plus it's real purpose was to show that a library doesn't cut it for a
feature that should be in the language. That said if anyone wants to port
it to the later version of the language, ie rip out the 1/2 the code that
does result type detection feel free.
