Life will be better with 0x:

  template<typename... Args>
  auto operator()(Args&&... args) const
    -> decltype(get()(std::forward<Args>(args)...)
    return get()(forward<Args>(args)...);

Doesn't solve the unary_function/binary_function issue you brought up,
but it's a lot simpler than the C++98 version :)
