How do you iterate the tuple elements? Do you use BOOST_PP_REPEAT() or do
you convert the tuple to a list and use BOOST_PP_LIST_FOR_EACH()?

Is the syntax very important?

It is possible to build lists that are much longer than the tuple limit 16
by using the following technique:

    ( N
    , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (E11, E12, ..., E1M) )
    , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (E21, E22, ..., E2M) )
    , ...
    , BOOST_PP_TUPLE_TO_LIST(M, (EN1, EN2, ..., ENM) )

BOOST_PP_LIST_FOLD_RIGHT_2ND() macro is not available in the current
release, but it is available in the CVS.
