Consider the following piece of code

#include <functional>

int main()
    auto f = [](int i) { return 0.f; };
    typedef decltype(f) f_type;
    std::result_of<f_type(int)>::type v;

This fails to compile, and will result in the error:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\include\xxresult(28): error C2903: 'result' : symbol is neither a class template nor a function template

Apparently, a lambda doesn't define a result_type typedef. Now, C++11 doesn't say that it should, but then again, C++11 defines result_of<> using decltype(). Perhaps VC++ should implement result_of similarly? Or, in the mean time, simply add a result_type typedef to the compiler generated function object.
