Very nice! This gives me an idea how to write easy to read tutorials.
I might have more comments, but one will suffice for now:
"boost::fusion::push_back() returns a new vector. The vector v isnt changed. The new
vector is a copy of the original vector with the added element."
That is not correct. push_back returns a view, not a container:
"Returns a view which is lazily evaluated."
This makes push_back very efficient at runtime.
