int (char, long) is a function type, i.e., the type that the pointer
type int (*)(char, long) points to. You can pull apart a point type
using partial specialization:

template<typename> struct Honk;

template<typename R, typename T1, typename T2>
struct Honk<R(T1, T2)> { };

Honk<int(char, long)> h; // R = int, T1 = char, T2 = long

The implementation of Boost.Function is most definitely not a thing of
beauty, but it gets the job done :)
