If you're set out to replace Boost.Function, then maybe you would
replace class functor. However, here are the issues you'll face:

1. You're going to either have to change the implementation of the
registry, so that the signature parameter becomes a sequence of
signatures instead of just a single signature. This is what you'll
have to do if you're out to replace Boost.Function -- which doesn't
make much sense as of the moment.

2. You will eventually have to distinguish the registry implementation
of an overloaded dispatcher from a single-signature dispatcher. This
is because it doesn't make much sense (or any sense) to use an
overloaded dispatcher from a single-signature dispatcher.

We can take the discussion off-list if you're interested in moving forward.

Have a good week ahead.
