I'm just guessing here (your example never actually invokes the lambda
functor), but I think you want to change func above to something

template <typename T1, typename T2>
void func(T1 n, T2 f)
    typedef T1 arg1_type;
    // ...

... if you want to deduce the type of n.

I am not sure that you need to use boost::function at all. Also, this
seems like a very convoluted way of dispatching a function based on
whether or not it's called with a smart pointer. Why not overload
do_get for smart_pointer rather than specializing getter for the value
of is_same?
