OK, in the bind case nullary operator() can just be omitted (if there
are no parameters there's no point to use bind in the first place).

But for the Fusion sequence case that wrapper would have to be entirely
generic (IOW allow nullary calls if there is an appropriate
constructor), because the sequence can be empty.
