I think I've mentioned that I have such a "overloads" library
extension in my HD somewhere. At one point, I asked Doug on
the possibility of adding it to boost.function and he expressed
his interest. Of course that means documentation and stuff.
I'll try to see if I can squeeze some time to get this into
completion. At any rate, I can post the code sans docs.
