Suppose you have an object r of a type generated by boost::ref for an
object of type T. (That's boost::reference_wrapper<T> right?)
Now let's say we have this line of code:
boost::reference_wrapper<T> has no operator() but it does have an
implict conversion to T&. If that type T does have an operator() taking
no arguments, wouldn't the above code be perfectly legal?

I have tried the following on my compiler and it worked perfectly:

#include <boost/function.hpp>
#include <boost/ref.hpp>

void func(boost::function0<void> f) { f(); }

struct functor
  void operator()() {std::cout << "It works!" << std::endl; }

int main()
  functor f;

It works!
It works!

If this doesn't work for you, then is my logic (and my compiler) flawed?
