// Implementation notes
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// If you're reading the implementation, before proceeding further, you should
// read the top comment of base/bind_internal.h for a definition of common
// terms and concepts.
// Though Bind()'s result is meant to be stored in a Callback<> type, it
// cannot actually return the exact type without requiring a large amount
// of extra template specializations. The problem is that in order to
// discern the correct specialization of Callback<>, Bind would need to
// unwrap the function signature to determine the signature's arity, and
// whether or not it is a method.
// Each unique combination of (arity, function_type, num_prebound) where
// function_type is one of {function, method, const_method} would require
// one specialization. We eventually have to do a similar number of
// specializations anyways in the implementation (see the Invoker<>,
// classes). However, it is avoidable in Bind if we return the result
// via an indirection like we do below.
// TODO(ajwong): We might be able to avoid this now, but need to test.
// It is possible to move most of the static_assert into BindState<>, but it
// feels a little nicer to have the asserts here so people do not need to crack
// open bind_internal.h. On the other hand, it makes Bind() harder to read.
