Thanks but that's not the issue:
1) If you remove the tag::x::_ (e.g., use int for y's type) then it
compiles with (void), (bool), and any other result type.
2) If you leave the tag::x::_ as y's type then it does not compile
with neither (void), (bool), or any other result type (for all result
types you get the same error as above). As far as I understand, the
last error about the result type might be induced by the first error
which is about mpl::_2 not being bound to a Boost.Parameter argument
pack-- who should do that binding? how?

Please someone help :)

NOTE: I can't implement Boost.Contract support for named parameter
without this feature because within the contract macros I need to
refer to the parameter types. This is a blocking issue for integrating
Boost.Parameter in Boost.Contract!!
