Just curious, isn't it better to make it as template-inline only library ?
c# implements delegates as a part of language...
It would be nice to have it in c++ without dealing with linker.
Main reason why linker is bad is that there a lot of different library
builds :
        MT <-> single threaded,
        std lib as dll <-> statically linked,
        in dll <-> static lib
        debug <-> release
And dealing with bunch of libraries ( even if you have one compiler on PC ... )
isn't good idea for such general and frequenly used library.
The other option can be conidional #pragma comment ... for compilers which
support this feature.

But IMHO template-inline would be still better, of course if there are no
reasons for current design.
