It's good enough, when you know that the return type is the first in the
list, and you don't need the parameter names.

function< void, char const * /*name*/, int /*mode*/ > is acceptable, but the
above is still clearer for people that encounter function<> for the first
time. You can always use

function<void, char const *, int> pf; // void pf(char const * name, int

of course. :-)
