Vectors would only be funcallable if their first element is also.
`functionp' would reflect that constraint, so (functionp (vector 1))
would return nil, but (functionp (vector 'cons)) would return t.

Of course, if it really is too dangerous, then a `curried object' could
just be another Lisp_VectorLike object, and `make-closure' and `curry'
would still be synonymous.
