Well, there's compressed_pair<F, compressed_pair<arg1_type,
compressed_pair<arg2_type> > >...

Why? Does it need more than the 8-byte member pointer and 4-byte

Much of my earlier whining about implementing the SBO in
boost::function is that I've been trying to keep the overhead down. I
think at it's current state with the 12-byte buffer, it's at the
right balance point between execution time and space overhead
(assuming we can trick bind into smashing those binders into 12 bytes
