Clear enough. I would find the gref metafunction useful factored out
in a separate include file (with a more descriptive name than gref
like... forwardable<T>::type?
lvalue_reference_to_which_is_bindable<T>::type :) ?)

I agree with Dave on the EBO suggestion (and thanks for the
compressed_pair lesson)

Very useful. Although, I seem to run into cases where I want to have
a forwarding function (not function object), or a forwarding operator.
 But maybe I'm wrong in preferring an actual function...

GCC 4.0.1/darwin. I expanded the example from the docs a bit to where
the forwarded function was polymorphic with varying return type. No

Read the docs, studied the implementation until I mostly understood
what it was doing, contemplated it a bit, and gave it a quick try.

I have a few bumps on my head, courtesy of the forwarding problem.

Yes - thanks for another great contribution.
