I've tried to compile your code using VS 12.0.30110.00 Update 1

but it won't even take the non-const iterator.

(It fails missing a type in constructible.hpp)

With this compiler version, I have used Steven's print sequence examples and some derived versions (all non- const values I think) previously

but I now find that none of the previously run example compile, failing like this

I:\modular-boost\boost/type_erasure/constructible.hpp(88): error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'type'

for reasons that I have yet to fathom.

Does some change now *require* variadics so I need a more recent compiler?

(I wouldn't dare look at the underlying code, (though it smells of a const iterator version not being defined?) -
that requires a brain the size of a planet ;-)

However this test passes (along with all the other tests), whatever that might mean

and Steven Watanabe seems to unavailable by email :-((

So that is no help at all for you :-( Sorry.
