Well, you're absolutely right. I totally missed that T would be imbued
with const from the argument. On top of that, my test program was still
calling the old wrap function (the one that returned wrapper directly,
without using forward_adapter), so I jumped to the conclusion that the
compiler error was due to non-const reference.

BTW, defining result<> seems to be not necessary, but I think it's a
good idea to have it.

Sorry for the confusion and Thanks!
