The following code:

struct Foo
   template <typename T>
void Bar()
int main()
   Foo f = Bar;
   return 0;

Results in the following error message:

error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'boost::optional<T> (__cdecl *)(void)' to 'Foo'
          No constructor could take the source type, or constructor overload resolution was ambiguous

It compiles successfully under newer versions of gcc. VC++2010 doesn't seem to think a function pointer can be a parameter to a function accepting a templated rvalue reference parameter, but this is necessary to implement perfect forwarding.
