I see. They are split between vararg "def" and "use".

... has the lowest rank for overload resolution.
You can use it as a default case.

    template <typename T>
    void CallFooIfAvailableImpl(T& t, decltype(t.foo())*) {
    template <typename T>
    void CallFooIfAvailableImpl(T& t, ...) {
      // nothing
    template <typename T>
    void CallFooIfAvailable(T& t) {
      CallFooIfAvailableImpl(t, 0);

It is also useful when making traits.
