One 'cheap' solution might be to enable it for compilers implementing
C++0x features.

For instance, decltype and variadic templates would appear to solve
most the dependency dependency and PP problems - although I'm not sure
what is involved in adding support for unary_function/binary_function
dependency for one and two argument functions.
