If the bind documentation doesn't tell you the type of that object
(does it?), then officially you can't. Unofficially, you could pass
the result of the bind expression to a function template that does
something illegal on it, like

          template <class F>
          void show_me_the_type(F const& f) { f += "hello"; }

and your compiler will probably show it to you.
