I had added a variadic version of the undocumented is_empty macro to
Boost PP on the 'develop' branch. Since the macro is undocumented and
the variadic version is much better than the pre-existing non-variadic
version I did not foresee this causing any problems. However I have now
updated the 'develop' branch to remove the use of the variadic version.

Is Boost accumulators really using Boost PP is_empty ? Otherwise I
cannot see where my change could have caused the breakage in accumulators.
