Well, if pointers are dereferenced in case of accessing members, then the
problem already exists and can't be reason for not accepting enhancement

However, there is still a question what to do when both function are available:
foo(T* ptr, ...);
foo(T val, ...);

I prefer to see the former to have priority over the latter. It may be useful
in cases when the first one was written intentionally for e.x. to check for
null pointer.
