Again, try this in phoenix:
  boost::transform(v, arg1 * 2);

The arg1 * 2 creates this same thing:
struct anonymousThing
  template<typename T>
  T operator(const T& t) const
    return t * 2;

So the above executes something like this:
  boost:;transform(v, anonymousThing());

Which the compiler should rather well optimize completely out, at
least it always does for me in VC.

You can also use _1 in phoenix (*IF* you pull it from the phoenix
namespace and you do *NOT* include boost/bind.hpp), but arg1 is better
as it is completely unambiguous so you have no worry.
