I tried with no luck. It doesn't seem related to is_const, MSVC-7.1
considers both


overloads exactly equal, even if BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT in that class
considers both arguments are not the same.

One workaround I've found is to pass one reference_wrapper by const
reference and the other one by value:

//Note, argument taken by const ref (unchanged)
   Type operator()(
     const reference_wrapper<
       typename remove_reference<Value>::type>& x)const
     return operator()(x.get());

//Note, argument taken by value (changed)
   Type operator()(
       typename remove_const<
         typename remove_reference<Value>::type>::type> x)const
     return operator()(x.get());

You could make this conditional to MSVC-7.1, but passing
reference_wrapper by value should lead to the same performance, I guess.
