I am most definitely interested in this. The boost::function library has huge
amounts of generated code and maintainence on the Perl script that generatess
it has become a nightmare.

I'm interested about the practical portability of such a library. Does it
generally work well across compilers? What sort of limitations have you run
into? Macro expansion depth limitations? Macro length limitations?
