The preprocessor library actually contains equivalent macros, but they are
not documented and are currently considered a private implementation detail.
The BOOST_PP_TUPLE_ELEM() macro is implemented using macros that look like
#define BOOST_PP_TUPLE2_ELEM0(A,B) A
#define BOOST_PP_TUPLE2_ELEM0(A,B) B
#define BOOST_PP_TUPLE3_ELEM0(A,B,C) A
#define BOOST_PP_TUPLE3_ELEM1(A,B,C) B
#define BOOST_PP_TUPLE3_ELEM2(A,B,C) C
It seems unlikely that the implementation would change, because the
alternative would be a slower implementation of BOOST_PP_TUPLE_ELEM(). So,
perhaps these macros should be documented.
