Whoa! I've taken a look into FC++ at one occasion and found it most
impressive. :)

I've written some code of my own that uses lots of functoids (basically,
sort of not-quite continuations) and found out to my horror that
Boost::lambda (and the entire STL machinery in general) is not very
comfortable with them. If the inclusion of FC++ into Boost could provide
a greater compatibility between template<T> struct ... { operator() ...}
and struct ... { template<T> ... operator(); } worlds, that would be a
very worthwile goal in its own right. :)
