Sounds great!

You don`t use asio, is you code portable to other operating systems?
Can it be tuned, to use asio/libev?

I took a quick glance. Looks like "alpha release", but it is possible
to understand the idea.

This looks like not a safe approach:
void operator()( Member Class::*p, const char* name )
You serialize no info about function parameters.

I`m interested, but now I have no projects were it is possible to use
your library.
