How much faster, exactly? Recently, in a thread "[signal] performance" I've
posted a small benchmark that finds boost::function to take 4 times more
time that call via function pointer -- which, IMO, is pretty fast.

Can you use that benchmark to obtain speedup for your optimization?

I find it pretty strange, can you clarify how it's possible. How did you
measure the time spend in boost::function?
