There were already chaining macros for one- and two-argument templates. I
added a template with four arguments. Instead of adding a custom
chained-base template like what was done for indexable, I added a macro
family for four-argument templates instead. Since I did that, I might as
well do a family for three-argument templates too, and so I used that family
for indexable, making the above fragment unneeded.

I think I did it because I needed a default constructor for the iterator
type. (I declare an uninitialized iterator as a common index variable.)
The default is the NULL pointer, but I'm not sure that an arbitrary P can
properly accept the null-pointer constant. I made the input parameter a T*
so the NULL value is guaranteed to be properly accepted, provided that P can
be constructed from a converted T*.

Whoops! Is the middle _e_ silent? (Is the word still pronounced
"arch-type," like I thought, or is it "arch-e-type?")
