Function already has a bunch of other template parameters (Allocator, Mixin,
and invocation Policy), so this isn't new territory. boost::function uses
named template parameters to support these extra parameters in a generative

  boost::function<void, int, float, double>::threading_policy<MyPolicy>::type

Or one can just use the numbered variants. I personally use the numbered
variants instead of the generate template because it's rare for me to use a
Boost.Function object with more than 2 arguments, and I definately don't use
each of 0-10 arguments in one file :). Pulling in just
<boost/function/function2.hpp> is much faster than <boost/function.hpp>.
