Would you expect this code to work:

  struct my_class
    void bar();

  struct my_class_const
    void bar() const;

  template< typename T >
  void foo(T const& t)
    typedef typename boost::unwrap_reference<T>::type class_type;
    boost::bind(&class_type::bar, boost::ref(t))();

  my_class x;
