I thought I could the problem can be solved like the following code, but
it does not compile for gcc (c++0x):

template< typename Fn >
void g( BOOST_RV_REF( Fn) ) {
    typedef typename remove_reference< Fn >::type Y;
            is_same< void, typename result_of< Y( X &) >::type >::value));

g() should be callable with function pointers, copyable and moveable-only
functors (signatue void( X&)).

Again - the original code works for gcc, intel, msvc and clang (Linux) and
fails for clang on MacOS X.
