I implemented an equality check as a constant time operation using the same type
of technique and emailed a sample to Vesa (the current version uses WHILE). It
basically hinges on this fact: EQUAL(x, y) ... if MACRO_y will not expand
inside MACRO_x, then x must be equal to y. Using this constant-time operation
equality check, I reimplemented TUPLE_ELEM, making the implementation
significantly easier to expand to higher values. The current implementation
uses the brute force approach:


// etc. etc.
