We'd like to keep the clang-cl self-host working until we implement
MSVC-compatible RTTI.

+Do not use std::function
+Using ``std::function`` breaks self-hosting Clang on Windows with the Microsoft
+Visual C++ STL.  MSVC's implementation of ``std::function`` requires RTTI, and
+Clang does not implement `MSVC-compatible RTTI`_ yet.  Generally, any local use
+of ``std::function`` can be replaced with ``auto``.  For code that truly needs
+an opaque function, use something else for the meantime.
