The problem is that we already have composers, but the just don't work
as well as they might. The solution seems to me to be to fix the
existing composers rather than create new ones.

I do agree that a refactoring is necessary. It certainly seems that
the function traits from functional.hpp need to come out of there
into somewhere that compose.hpp can include them, and others might
find a use for them. The nullary_function from compose.hpp would move
there too.
