That's correct. This code compiles on trunk. I made a late fix that
didn't make it into 1.46. If we ship a point release, I'll merge it over.

But even with this fix, it can crop up in other circumstances. This is a
Proto gotcha. It's missing a bunch of overloads in the interest of
compile times (transform_impl is instantiated /everywhere/), but I need
to reconsider this because you're not the first to get bitten by this.

If you file a bug, I'll get around to it eventually. Some day, I'll use
rvalue refs and this problem will just go away.
