Sorry if this reply is a little terser than it should be but I really
don't have time for a longer talk. Hopefully the point will be clear
despite the scarcity of words: let us not imitate the poor
partitioning of some standard headers. We already have to include
something like <algorithm> to get a simple std::min/max. It wouldn't
be exciting to have a similar situation for functional.hpp (even more
so because of all the type-traits and compiler workarounds stuff that
it involves)

If I had to choose a title for this, I would opt for "Beware of
logical cohesion" ;-)
