I don't see why typeof should be needed for O(1) access. All you need is a
specialization of at<> for each N up to the maximum size of vector. Of
course, you can use that trick for type lists as well. In fact, I did that
in one place in Boost.Python in order to speed it up on some old compilers,
with the old MPL codebase.
