Better is such a big word. You still have to say in which way it is
better; readability, efficiency, simplicity, something else? ;-) I
admit my solution is not perfect, but it does have certain advantages...

First, you seem to use boost/typeof/typeof.hpp, which I failed to
find in the boost version I currently use (stable 1.33.1). I didn't
find the documentation in the full doc, only the BoostBook. Why do
you need that library and is it absolutely necessary? I don't think
it should from the concepts necessary to put the thing together. All
you need, after all, is a destructor to call the code, and some
variable passing (Boost.Bind is very wonderful).

Also, I'm not a big fan of macros, even more when using IDs in them,
I think they reduce readability. I prefer compilers to pre-
compilers, if you know what i mean. In your case, adding a scope
inside the SCOPE_XXX makes for more indentation, which is not
necessarily A Good Thingie. I suggest at least putting those
brackets inside the SCOPE_XXX defines. This is all, of course, a
matter of taste. BTW, what happens if I typo the ID or just use the
same in two different places (either in the same scope or inlined

My solution is CopyConstructable. Many things become interesting
when you can copy a chain of commands. It is also bidirectionnal.
With a flag at construction, we could invert the order of execution.
We could also reorder it in the middle (cannot think of a real use
for this, though).

BTW, did you check my code? You never told me what you thought of it...

PS: I don't think a vector of function calls have been made in
boost. I may be wrong
