Yep, I had noticed that. What I like better about Alexander's approach
is that the transition table is implemented with ordinary C++ what makes
it quite a bit more expressive than the MPL collections you used in your
examples. Don't get me wrong, I personally love MPL, but I've found that
the average programmer is easily scared away with even very simple MPL

Unless I'm missing something one could easily modify Alexander's code to
be O(1) too...?
