I suspect that there are really two tools here. One which allows
separate function objects to be bound to each signature, more like
a fusion sequence or something. The other binds all overloads to
a single object. Neither one is easily implementable in terms of the other.
If all the signatures are bound at once, then it is difficult to later
just one. If the functions are bound separately, then there is a
size overhead compared to using a single object.
