You might look at Boost.Fusion and Boost.Phoenix. Fusion has some
very interesting building and invoking capabilities, Phoenix uses
Fusion. Phoenix has a bind (and function) that can fully replace the
normal Boost ones, but have vastly better introspection ability (and
many other abilities). I am not sure it has everything you want, but
it should at least have more.
