You misunderstood. What is the name of the TYPE of the n'th element?
If I have a tuple:
then the name of the TYPE of the first element is T1. How do I get the
given only the tuple type?
This may be useful in some circumstances. For example:
template<class T> void f(T t)(
typename T::type1 x = get<1>(t);
typename T::type2 y = get<2>(t);
There is no use being able to get the n'th element,
if you can't name its type. Often, you know, but it would
be useful to get the type in a template where the tuple is
passed as a single T.
