There'll be nothing in boost::placeholders except _1.._9. Not 100% sure
about the future.
The using directive allows you to declare your own _1 in the global
::_1 = 5;
This works now. It's possible to make it work with the using declarations as
well, if we put them into an unnamed namespace. But the idiomatic way to use
the standard placeholders is "using namespace std::placeholders;", so I tend
towards the same.
