The documentation for Boost Functional/Factory states:

'For technical reasons the arguments to the function objects have to be
LValues. A factory that also accepts RValues can be composed using the
boost::forward_adapter or boost::bind.'

Your suggestion of using const lvalue (passing in non-const reference
wrappers where needed) seems to be the workaround for the C++03 perfect
forwarding problem that was employed by Boost smart_ptr::make_shared, not
sure why Functional/Factory took a different approach?
