Apologizes for my ignorance. The following compiles fine for me:

class Bar
     int var;

template< class T, class U>
void foo( T U::* ptr )


but I see your point. What a pitty the language is a barior here.
We simply can't create a class template without adding two arguments
for the ruturn type and the class type.

Thanks for explaining. Your solution is still pretty nice.
