I vote that boost::ref() becomes like std::ref(), but
boost::proto::ref() remains like former boost::ref() for the 1.56

(Obviously implied in this is that boost::ref has two
implementations, let's say boost::v1::ref() and boost::v2::ref(), and
people choose which they like).

I'd live with boost::ref() being the old behaviour this release but
with the new boost::ref() available as boost::experimental::ref() or
something, and for 1.57 boost::ref() becomes like std::ref().
