I encountered the same problem with non-const references and the only
work-around I found was to use mpl::vector<T0,T1,...,TN> as the 1st
argument to the forwarding function. See:

and its use in overhead_referent_vals.hpp in that directory. Also,
there's tests for 0 and 1 arguments in the corresponding

If the additional mpl::vector arg is not acceptable, maybe it could
be curried away. I remember David Abraham had some currying code
somewhere. Maybe it's in mpl also.
