Let me explain this in more detail.
Say, if one want to renew an object of some type which may be hold by a
variant, and not care about the object's old data, he may do somthing like:
// assure variant hold object of type T
if(var.which() != T's index)
var = T(); // 2 visitation + copy
T& t = boost::get<T>(var); // 1 visitation
// process t
If we have T& t = var.assign(T()), 1 visitation can be eliminated.
If we have T& t = var.construct<T>(...), only 1 visitation and optionally
1 in place construction are needed.
