[-ed I'd love this, as long as I didn't have to use all of Boost to get it].

in reference to Boost.Bind. You don't need all of Boost. boost::bind is 
reasonably self-contained. I see that a dependency on mpl::bool_ has crept 
up in boost/ref.hpp, but Bind does not need it, so it's excisable without 
much effort.

"Soon" (in a few years, once TR1 is implemented across the board) we'll 
hopefully be able to get 'bind' and 'function' by just including 
<functional>. This will also help Boost.Signals a bit since I suspect that 
nowadays most of the preprocessed code comes from boost::function.
