The usage .by was never really documented. It was originally there to make it easier support things like `construct<T>().by(decay)` to construct by value. However, the interface has changed to make it more consistent with the rest of the library. So now `construct<T>()` will construct by value, whereas `construct_basic<T>()` has the original behavior. Of course, this difference only matters when constructing templates.

The .by method was just a shortcut for the by adaptor, so it can be written as `by(_1 * _1, construct<std::vector<int>>())`
