In general there is no unique argument_type for callable objects, they
could have overloaded function call operators.

makes it into the standard you could find out the argument type *for a
given invocation* i.e. you can ask "what is the type of the first
argument when called as f(x, y, z)", but not "what is the
argument_type of F"
