You can't talk about Boost efficiency in general. As difficult as it
is to pull apart, Boost contains individual components. Are we talking
about the efficiency of Boost Function then? I'm sure if someone
manages to speed it up, many people on this mailing list (not to
mention the folks who are implementing std::function) would be very
interested to see how it can be done.
