Unnecessary coupling. This will make function.hpp fail regression tests
wherever bind.hpp fails. If I need bind.hpp, I'll include it directly.

I don't think it's even a convenience. bind() is more convenient than
function<>() for binding member functions to instances because you don't
have to supply a return type and an argument list.
