The test tests whether the constness of the object returned by bind is
properly propagated to the bound function object. In the simplest case,
bind( f ) should return something like:

struct bound_f
    F f_;

    void operator()() { return f_(); }
    void operator()() const { return f_(); }

In the first op(), called for non-const bound_f objects, the f_ member is
non-const. In the second op(), called for const bound_f objects, the f_
member is const.
