std::result_of<F(the args types)> uses F::result_type if it exists, but
the other way around is of course not possible, since result_type can
only work with monomorphic functors.

So if I have a function that expects a functor F that provides
F::result_type, the fact that the functor provides std::result_of<F(the
args types)>::type, doesn't really help since it doesn't guarantee
F::result_type is available.
