I am trying to create a std::map from an mpl::map.  I’ve been trying to figure out how to use mpl::for_each to accomplish this.  The problem I have is that the runtime function is passed to for_each by value and returns void.  All the examples I’ve seen for mpl::for_each involve printing and not creating any new objects.  Here is the attempt I’ve made:
// creates std::map<size_t,size_t> from mpl::map<size_t,size_t>
template<typename TypeMap>
struct MapMaker
        typedef std::map<size_t, size_t> map_type;
        map_type func_map;
        template<typename U>
        void operator()(U x)
func_type operator[](size_t i)
                return func_map[i];
typedef boost::mpl::map<
        boost::mpl::pair<boost::mpl::size_t<1>, boost::mpl::size_t<2> >,
        boost::mpl::pair<boost::mpl::size_t<2>, boost::mpl::size_t<24> >,
> myMap;
int main()
        MapMaker<myMap> m;
        size_t result = m[1];
Of course this is a simplified version of what I’m really trying to do, which is create a map to function pointers. 
The problem is in the call to mpl::for_each in the MapMaker constructor.  The std::map is created, but never returned.  I’ve considered making func_map static, but that complicates things quite a bit, especially since MapMaker it is a class template.
