Would work fine for boost::compressed_pair, but not for std::pair, IIUC.
In one, first is a member function, but in the other it's just a public data
member. Even assuming it works, would it inline the access to first
properly? Just wondering.

I like Thomas' suggestion about tuples. If it could be made to work for
tuples AND std::pairs, it would get my vote. I'll think about it.
Meanwhile, std::pair is pretty special among tuples due to its relation
to std::map and other parts of the standard. But looking forward, tuples
might become just as important... point taken.

Thanks for the replies,
