Subject: [boost] Adding polymorphic_value to boost

I'd like to propose adding the class-template `polymorphic_value` to boost.
`polymorphic_value` is designed to allow the compiler to correctly generate
special member functions for classes with polymorphic components (It's
`any` with an interface).
`polymorphic_value` has been proposed for standardisation in P0201 and has
advanced through the Library Evolution group in Albuquerque (Nov 5-10).
A working draft of the proposal and implementation can be found at
I gave a presentation about polymorphic_value at C++::London here:
Matt Calabrese has kindly offered to be review manager.
