See, which we can
also use as a workaround. (Note that there appear to be quite some bugs
with decltype in trailing return types with old compiler versions and
support for member functions was only voted very late in the process to
C++11, see

Dan, ok to do the following? (I'd push directly to release/unstable...)
commit 533d40176adbf6ee03b207db16f460736eae367a (HEAD -> fix-decltype-gcc)

    Fix trailing return type for old GCC
    GCC 4.9.4 complains that it "cannot call member function
    dereference_scm() without object" which appears to be a bug, see Work around
    this issue by adding an explicit 'this' for the member call.
