IMHO, it comes from the typeof() feature.
First of all, and for fairness, `StringTypeOf` is the one that I added into
Phobos in the past, so original XXXTypeOf is only FunctionTypeOf.
I'm not a native English speaker, but it seems to me that XXXTypeOf!(Y) is more
natural than XXXType!(Y).
The former looks like a sentence, but latter like a noun. This kind of
templates work like meta function, and function name usually contains verb. So
I sometimes feel wrong about the latter.
And, 'KeyType' and 'ValueType' are often used in user code. I think we should
avoid using generic name as the piece of library, as far as possible.
