It isn't a member function, so there's no way to override it. The
customization point is a call to hash_value via argument dependent
lookup. The noexcept specifiers are going to be conditional on whether
the iterators and hash functions are noexcept, so if an overload
doesn't have a noexcept specification, then hash_range for that value
is going to be effectively noexcept(false) and will still be
