The signature is
std::pair<mic_index::iterator, bool> (mic_index::*fn)(const pair<int,int>&);

However, it is not usually a good idea to rely on the exact
signature of library member functions. For instance, the standard
library allows member functions to have extra default arguments.
In the case of multi_index, using a reference to const will not
always work because multi_index uses call_traits.
