I don't know how boost::function is implemented, but it should be
possible that it can only throw if the function object contains state.
And I think that should seldom happen.

If it doesn't contain state, it should be possible to fallback to a
two-pointer representation, where function owns nothing (and thus
doesn't need to allocate memory) and only references code and context.
(that is to say, std::nested_function from the lambda proposal)
