Actually, you can approximate it pretty well in C++03 (using derivation and
using tricks) to the point that I think it will work pretty much as you
expect except for nullary member functions, where your queries must be more
restrictive. This is a useful query, but I believe Edward has decided it to
be outside the scope of TTI.
