Wouldn't implementing at<> exclusively by partial specialization matching
involve defining n * n / 2 specializations?
at<v1<>, 0>, at<v2<>, 0>, at<v3<>, 0>, ..., at(Vn<>, 0)
at<v2<>, 1>, at<v3<>, 1>, ..., at(Vn<>, 1)
at<v3<>, 2>, ..., at(Vn<>, 2)
In my case, where n = 255, this would result in ~30,000 specializations of
at (or at_impl).
Maybe this is where the actual problem is?
