That's because they do significantly different things and pose significantly
different constraints on input the types. Hana's any_of is short-circuiting,
works on compile-time infinite sequences, and works on runtime values as
well as compile-time values. mp11 has none of that (because that's out of
scope for the library, except for short-circuiting which I was surprised
it did not provide).
