Hi Arkadiy,

Yep, this has been previously discussed. Three problems here:

1) boost::function adds an extra indirection penalty.
2) Having to provide the function at iintialization time is
3) some valuable type info is lost. To continue with the
std::set example, set<T,boost::function<bool(const T&,const T&,)>
flattens out every possible lambda expression we might plug in.
This might not be desirable.

Besides, I think such a static lambda library could be useful
for more far-fetched purposes, along the line of enriching
the code-producing capabilities of MPL.
