Yes, I thought that would be the reason why this wasn't noticed before.
Anyway, the code that's needed to allow for situations like these is
minimal, so it was not too much trouble once I understood the issues:

     typedef mpl::eval_if<
>::type F_;

     typedef result_of<F_( args )>::type result_type;

The problem I had was that I needed a type for result_of (e.g.,
non-cv-qualified function pointer) and another type to pass around
(e.g., function reference). By themselves, references work pretty well.
