There is no const_mem_fun in the Standard.

mem_fun(pmf) may return mem_fun_t or const_mem_fun_t depending on whether
pmf is a const or a non-const member function, but both
mem_fun_t::operator() and const_mem_fun_t::operator() are const; neither
mem_fun_t nor const_mem_fun_t contains an object, so they don't need to pass
