Seems that something like the following should give us an ability to check
for presence of a particulary named member [function/data] in a class:

typedef char (&no_tag)[1];
typedef char (&yes_tag)[2];

template< typename T > no_tag has_member_foo_helper(...);

template< typename T >
yes_tag has_member_foo_helper(int, void (T::*)() = &T::foo);

template< typename T >
struct has_member_foo
{
    BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT(bool
        , value = sizeof(has_member_foo_helper<T>(0)) == sizeof(yes_tag)
        );
};

struct my {};
struct her { void foo(); };

int main()
{
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!has_member_foo<my>::value);
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(has_member_foo<her>::value);

    return 0;
}
