I hope the MPL label is right. At least the question has *some*
relevance to metaprogramming.

Basically, I need to find out whether a certain function F over a
certain type is defined, and if yes, take its address.

Input: the type T, and function NAME F.
Output: pointer to F if Ret F(T, T& or T const&; or two arguments) is
defined, 0 otherwise. The function can return anything, including void.

Variations in input:
- the function may take T, T&, or T const&
- if possible, the method should work for user-defined operators (my C++
is a bit rusty in this area - is it at all possible to take an address
of an overloaded operator?) I guess the F would then be named, e.g.
'operator<' ?

If the general case is hard to work out, it's OK to have the solution
just for Ret F(T const&) and Ret F(T const&, T const&).

I hope the question is clear enough :)
Thanks for your time and answers.
