Personally I'm not sure about P0847 (http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2019/p0847r2.html#name-lookup-candidate-functions), because it seems to apply to "this" only whereas my goal is to stay generic, extensible and use a pretty syntax as much as possible.

To go back on P0847, it reminds me of a GCC extension where we can convert a pointer-to-member-function to a pointer-to-global-function and extract the "this" parameter:


Might as well standardize this extension, no?

For the recursive lambda, a lambda really is a syntactic sugar form of a functor so why not imply operator () quite simply?

auto fib = [](int n) 
    if (n < 2) return n;
    return operator () (n-1) + operator () (n-2);

I might miss something but this is on top of my head.
