Sorry, this is not a review. Ignore this if irrelevant.
Was boost::detail::functionN family in Boost.Accumulators considered?
That seems more advanced than Boost.Functional/Forward.
FWIW, starting from Abrahams' callable and functionN, I've been implementing a similar library:
http://tinyurl.com/vd4r5 , which regards Boost.Functional/Forward facility
as one of higher-order functions, `perfect`.
BTW, IMHO, Boost.Functional/Forward seems not a good name, because
C++0x has `std::forward` which takes not a function but argument!
