Function allows you to ask about the return type (via
boost::function<...>::type()) and to extract the type, for which it
needs RTTI. However, this feature could be #ifdef'd out. We had
(briefly) discussed adding a BOOST_NO_RTTI macro for this purpose back
in September. Perhaps it's time to reopen that discussion.

I'm surprised that the increase is so large, but not that it exists.
_1, _2, etc. are namespace-level variables (by necessity) and will be
replicated in each translation unit where they are used.

The curse of template-heavy code :( There isn't much we can do about
this, unfortunately.
