code now that uses bind and function extensively and having reasonable
success with Forte 6.2 (C++ 5.3). I've had to change a few things and will
post a list when I've finished. If you're using this version of the
compiler two things spring to mind:

1. Define BOOST_NO_INCLASS_MEMBER_INITIALIZATION fixed it. In general, this
does support in class member initialisation, but for some reason, the code
in type traits causes a compiler assertion.

2. Get the latest patch. This fixes some of the problems you'll find with
segmentation faults, notably with function (so for example compiling
boost.thread used to fail but now works for me).
