Not necessary. Those in Operator Type Traits can be used on non-class
types, e.g. has_plus<int>, so has_call is consistent with that.

Actually I'm not sure if it's feasible to support member-function ptr at
all, what do others think?

Nothing, just a bit tedious :p

So my current prefer would be "has_call" under Operator Type Traits

BTW, the History section seems unupdated even after the extension added :-/
