I've just made a little improvement to my implementation:

I added another function to determine the size of encoded expression:

template<class T>
char(&size(const T&))[
mpl::size<typename encode_type<mpl::vector0<>, T>::type>::value

Then I modified the nth item extraction to look like this:

#define BOOST_TYPEOF_TYPEITEM(z, n, expr)\
boost::mpl::int_<sizeof(boost::type_of::foo<(n <

Note that now no new templates gets instantiated for n larger than size.

I tried it at work, and this improvement cuts almost in half the compile
time of my example (with Spirit, Lambda, etc.), presumably having taken care
of smaller types.

I'll post the modified system later, when I am done with integral template
