Not a good idea. In lambda terms the above is var(b), not ref(b). We've been
using ref(x) to mean "just like x", i.e. ref(b)() means b(). One day we
might even get that core change that would enable
reference_wrapper<T>::operator T& to be considered in a ref(f)() expression;
for now, we "fake" it in bind, function, etc.
