I wouldn't class myself as an expert at these things, but I at least
thought I had a reasonable idea, and I can't see how you can "trivially"
convert a class, member function pair into a callback (at least on my
totally broken MSVC compiler - no void return's, no partial specialisation).
I've spent the last day or so working at a solution that I can use until
the absolutely fab boost::bind arrives and have totally failed. I'd have
thought this put the problem beyond the realm of "trivial".
Any news on boost::bind?
