Well, that's nicer in case 'at' has non-constant complexity. Still, I
find this "surprisingly brutal".

Can you give me a vague idea of this technique's performance
(seconds/functions), if recognizable at all ?

Oh! Use it already. My concern was about the preprocessed code (becomes
huge, causes numerous template instantiations when used and in some way
obscures the preprocessed headers).

However, if it works for Boost.Python I'll call it "common practice" and
just use it ;-).
