decltype is still broken in the final release of VC10. e.g. the
following code deduces the return type of getOne() to be one& rather
than one, causing an error on the "res r" line. Bizarrely, this problem
goes away if NO_CONSTRUCTOR is defined, as the return type is deduced
I am also aware of other scenarios where decltype doesn't work correctly
on VC10, but don't have good test cases for them.
void baz(F f)
typedef decltype(f()) res;
