Sorry I fat fingered an earlier send in the previous email.  I was
trying to say:

I would prefer to please keep using typedefs at least for function
pointers.  I find either of

typedef MyType::NestedType (*fptr)(const MyOhterType&);


typedef int fptr(const int&);

void f(fptr* ptr) {

easier to read than the "using" declaration (especially the second
form, with the explicit `fptr* ptr`).
