I am aware TR1 has subsumed “function” and so it is probably not possible remove the if-clause, but adding an unchecked invoke has significant benefits, [unchecked_invoke(), might be a better name than purely invoke()].

Another possible solution to this particular problem is to change the
call to boost::throw_exception to BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION
and then change boost/throw_exception.hpp to not define
BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION if it is already defined by the user.
