The primitives in integer_sequence.hpp are template aliases, so
argument-dependent lookup does not apply to them. The tuple functions are,
well, functions, and when f.ex. make_from_tuple<T>(tp) is called with an
std::tuple, ADL finds std::make_from_tuple because std is an associated
namespace. So the code suddenly becomes ambiguous in C++17.
