OK, granted, but I need it to be a sequence. I guess what I planned
will not work on all results of fold, but it will work on at least some.
Right now, I'm just trying to get it to work on what I need at the
moment, which is part of a test driver. I guess I'll just write
my own begin<fold<Sequence,StartState,ForwardOp> > and put it in
my test driver directory.

My other post mentioned visitors.hpp and its need for fold.
How could fusion's tuple be used to implement visitors where
the critical need is a StartState superclass for all instantiations
of ForwardOp?
