Indeed, thanks!

I was just about to answer that this does not solve the general problem of
using placeholders as indices as this assumes the array is a left-value.
Then I tested and realized that the const version of my original code:

int x = bind(static_cast<std::vector<int>::const_reference
const>(&std::vector<int>::operator[]), a, _1)(0);

actually compiles and works. If anyone is knowledgeable about this I'd glad
to hear an explanation.
