Heh heh. That was a fun idea: that in theory you could produce perfectly efficient predicates without boost::function, possibly even zero-size.

Unfortunately Stjepan found that Phoenix was not designed to produce small enough functors to serve as good predicates for constrained. It would take a redesigned Phoenix or another library to do this sort of thing right.
