simply put, with your suggestion you couldn't tell the difference between
assigning to a member or calling a 1-ary member function anymore.

bind(&X::member, _1, val) (x); // assigns member, or calls member(val) ?

Currently, a member data (only) behave like a 0-ary member function, and I
agree with Howard that it's nice.

bind(assign<T>(), bind(&X::member, _1), val) (x);
is a bit more verbose, but it could help human reading of long bind
expressions, spotting easily where assignments take place. Then again,
maybe not, I don't use bind that much.

(I guess you dont need assign if using boost::lambda
bind(protect(_1 = _2), bind(&X::member, _1), val) (x);
