Boost.Bind can indeed be used to decrease the number of args a function can
take, but it can't be used to increase the number of args a function can
take. In the example I gave in my original post, the callback:

bool callback(int,int,bool,int);

and you have a functon

bool draw(int,int)

You can't use bind to assign "draw" to "callback". args_cast can be used
