We have

    variant<T1, T2, ..., Tn>



There are two problems with it. First, there is a collision when n == 1.
Second, if I write

    template<class Seq> void f( variant<Seq> const & v );

my function will not match all variants. I think that the correct but
painful thing to do is to just drop the convenience T1..Tn form.
