That's not a bad plan, but it would've been even better if
boost/bind/bind.hpp didn't already exist. :-)

I'm having a bit of trouble deciding between the above and

    using namespace boost::placeholders;

The using declarations are closer to the current code and would be a better
bet compatibility-wise, but the using directive seems more correct somehow.
