Of course, you could always use your own data member accessor function
object whose type is more reliable. You could even avoid another
indirection by making the member pointer a template parameter,

Not a bad idea. Of course, the Boost typeof library has been accepted
and would do this for you quite nicely given the right registrations
in the bind library, but it's not in the CVS yet :)
