It is easy to produce fuction object from member function with binders.

I don't think that libsigc++ is very good, unless I'm missing something,
because it allows to call back into freestanding function only, not into
arbitrary function object. It is possible to register callback into member
function with the pointer to object, but this possibility is intrusive - it
requires to derive object from SigC::Object. It is not good IMO.
