`hana::overload` should work with pointers to non-member functions, but not
with pointer to member functions, as it does not have any special logic for
them. To support them, we'd have to call functions with `hana::apply` in the
implementation, which could be prohibitively expensive in terms of compilation
time (but probably not for `hana::overload` alone).

Also, keep in mind that the Functional part of Hana is out of scope for the
library and I'm looking forward to removing it in the future.
