I'm actually also asking myself what I'm missing. Everybody seems to claim that a namespace function provides the same functionality as a local function.
I know that I can use a "namespace functor" (i.e. a class that implements an "operator()" member function) instead of a local function. I guess I could also use Boost.Phoenix (or a similar library) to adapt a "namespace function" to provide the same functionality as a local function.
Should I understand the claim that a "namespace function" provides the same functionality as Boost.Local in this way, or is there something simpler that I'm missing?
