Now that I have better understood your library, my personal preference goes
towards "closure". The reason for that is:
1. "Closure" better reflects the nature of your library: you provide a tool
for defining closures: something more than functions, and something less
than lambda expressions.
2. This may make the learning of the library easier. If I know I am dealing
with closures I already expect binding functionality; there will be less
questions like "what is this 'bind' and what does it actually do?"
3. It may be a marketing bonus "closure" sounds (IMO) more attractive than
How about Boost.Closure library? "Local" may not even be necessary, because
"closure" somehow implies locality. (you do not need a global closure,
because global function will do).
