My using the inner namespace shouldn't include the outer namespace
unless somewhere in the lambda namespace there's a using ::boost. I
would consider that to be namespacing bug. For example using
boost::lambda shouldn't put shared_ptr in scope either.

Consider the following example code:
namespace Boost{
    typedef char _1;
    namespace Lambda{
        typedef int _1;
        //using namespace ::Boost; //very naught. don't do this!!!

void foo(){
    using namespace Boost::Lambda;
    _1 i; //fine as long as the using line above is commented out

Somewhere in the boost::lambda namespace there is a using namespace
boost. I can't find it though.

Thanks Bill. Maybe lambda can use the same placeholders as the
standard. After all the placeholders are just zero sized tags. As soon
as meta functions are standardized that work on them lambda could
probably use them.
