It looks like the result_of implementation is in pretty good shape. I've
expanded/fixed it to deal with a few cases I'd missed before. I'll check it
in Two general issues remain: "support" for broken compilers and a matter of

Broken compilers can't use result_of: without partial specialization, it's
completely unusable. Also, compilers that don't support SFINAE can't detect
result_type. I'm not sure how limiting this will be, but obvious Borland, HP,
and pre-7.1 Microsoft are all toast.

As for the protocol side of things: does anyone think we need to review a
library that is (1) merely scaffolding for other libraries, (2) trivial, and
(3) already blessed by the standards committee? Methinks not.
