I did something like that using variadic templates (with gcc-4.3 in
c++0x mode) for calling member functions without specifying the
parameter count.

It's something like this:

template <class T, class U, class R, class... ARGS> class memfun_caller_t
    memfun_caller_t(T *ptr, std::function<R(U*,ARGS...)> member)
          : m_ptr(ptr), m_member(member) {}

    R operator()(ARGS&&... args)
       return m_member(m_ptr, std::forward<ARGS>(args)...);

    T *m_ptr;
    std::function<R(U*,ARGS...)> m_member;
template <class T, class U, class R, class... ARGS>
memfun_caller_t<T,U,R,ARGS...> bind(R(T::*member)(ARGS...), U *obj)/*{{{*/
     return memfun_caller_t<T,U,R,ARGS...>(obj, member);

Unfortunately boost::bind didn't help me on this one. If you can't cope
with variadic templates, boost::preprocessor could be used to generate
