I think so. I posted about the issues I found with result_of and
is_pointer separately.

In this case, something else, in my naive implementation I thought
everything would be solved with a simple:

     typedef result_of<F(A0, ..., AN)>::type result_type;

But it turns out that if F is a function the compiler will complain that
we're trying to write a function returning a function. In the end, what
I did, specifically for this case, was to add a pointer to the function

Here I also found an issue with cv-qualified functions (if they do
exist...) and is_function. This one seems to be gcc-4.x specific.
