That's not the actual problem. Bindign such thing make codes cumbersome
to use in
generic context where you may or may not know if a T must sue for_each
or T::for_each.

The proper way to solve the original question while preserving
genericity is to use tag dispatching
and externally tagging each type supporting on for_each with a proper
compile-time flag thanks to
a proper meta-function then use it to select the implementation fo the
global, free for_each function.
