Great! I'll be sending an email later.

Right now I'm thinking maybe this should be a separate library (or a
small utility class) that builds upon or depends on Boost.Function.
However, if Doug (or Joel, and everybody else) thinks otherwise, and
that this should be merged into Boost.Function as an overload
extension, that would be acceptable as well.

Either way, we still need to write documentation and more tests, so in
the meantime I'd love to get this (and the documentation) into the
sandbox so that others can play around with it as well.
