The boost tuple class is a heterogenous list. Mine is an associative heterogenous list. I think const_associative_heterogenous_list_iterator is getting a little much :)

Other problems with the word "heterogenous" is that it has two possible spellings. (The other one is "heterogeneous").

At the moment I think I'm going with associative_list. After all, long names are what typedefs are for...
