I'm not absolutely sure, but I think that this creates a non-const
pointer to a const member function. As far as I understand it, this is
equivalent to:

typedef int ft( long, double ) const;
ft X::* pf;

To create something that matches to above specialization, you have to do
something like this:

ft X::* const cpf;

Anyway, what is the point of this? I specialize for a pointer and
pointers can be cv-qualified, thus to be complete I have to provide
specializations for all cv-versions, haven't I?
