cant be easily added at this level. However, the underlying functor system
maybe able to have you write:
simd::functor<some_func, sse2_> f2;
simd::functor<some_func, sse3_> f3;
boost::function<proper prototype> current_f = has_sse3 ? f3 : f2;
The main problem is that i am not sure it wont crap out at compile time
due to improper intrinsic being used.
