I do not agree with you. First, the "iteration" is optimized
by the compiler. Second, which is also related to my previous
comment on MACROs, I don't see any reason why fields and
columns can't be refered to by place holders as do boost.bind,
boost.lambda, boost.tuples and phoenix. Names? Sure you can
use names. Here's an example using Phoenix:

    tuple_index<0> my_field;
    val = tup[my_field];
