I fully understand that. The Boost.Lambda Bind needs to return a lambda
functor, while the Boost.Bind returns a "binder" or "bind_t".

It would be nice if one could have a "super"-construct for these
functional entities, be them lambda functors or "bind_t" closures.

Anyhow, we here have some kind of competition. At least in the projects
where the pure lambda features are not required, I have a "bind" choice:
Boost.Bind or Boost.Lambda.bind...

Yes, I see what you mean, but the implementations of Bind and Lambda are
radically different. They can't be merged.
