Thanks for the suggestion Dave, but I am not sure how I would achieve the
same as with the BOOST_FOREACH variant that I am suggesting. I am thinking
of something like the following:

int a1[] = { 1, 2, 3 };
int a2[] = { 4, 5, 6 };
BOOST_FOREACH2(int e1, a1, int& e2, a2)
    e2 += e1;

How would I write this with BOOST_FOREACH using zip_iterator?
