The following test proggy suggestions "no" :( Default parameters aren't
part of the signature of a function.

#include <iostream>

#include <boost/mpl/assert.hpp>

void f(int) { }
void g(int = 0) { }

typedef int yes_t;
typedef char no_t;
template< class T > yes_t is_same(T,T);
template< class T, class U > no_t is_same(T,U);

int main()
     BOOST_MPL_ASSERT_RELATION( sizeof( is_same(&f,&g) ), ==, sizeof(
yes_t ) );
     return 0;
