I'm writing this adaptor again and again. Last time was 4 days ago.
If function_arity were in boost it could save a lot of my time :)

Why metafunction? Function signature itself could be viewed as MPL
sequence (or view in MPL terms?):

  typedef argument_list<void (int)> args;

or may be even more natural (because arguments usually are numbered
from 1):

  typedef result_and_arguments<void (int)> sig;
  static_assert(is_same<void,at_c<sig,0>::type>); // result
  static_assert(is_same<int, at_c<sig,1>::type>); // first arg

Conversion from *any* sequence to function signature could help in
back convertion.
