Hi all,

I'm happy to announce that The Boost.Functional/Forward library has been
accepted into Boost. Congrats to Tobias for a great lib!

5 reviews, all positive.

Suggestions for improvement:
- Automatically detect if the compiler supports variadic templates and
  rvalue references and use those instead. This can be a useful
  portability utility when such compilers become more common.
- It should use compressed_pair to store the wrapped function object to
  take advantage of EBO.
- more tweakable parameters for specific uses - like, arity 3 for
function X,
  and arity 5 for function Y
- Docs: add more material explaining the forwarding problem
- Docs: should be explicitly specified that the wrapped function
  object must be result_of compatible
- Docs: A discussion of the impact of the library on compile time
  with high values of N)
