That was Peter :)

Right, so the function object has two parameters, the first (which corresponds
to the implicit 'this' parameter) is of type T* and the second is of type A.
When using bind, think of member function pointers as having an operator()
like this one, and try to forget the ugly member pointer syntax.

With bind(), no parameter is special, including the implicit object parameter.
If we have:

  g = boost::bind(f, _1, x)


maps to:

  f(y, x)

in our case, 'f' is an adaptor around a member function pointer, which ends up
