char (&foo())[9][8][7][6];

int main()
    using namespace boost::mpl;

    typedef vector_c<
      , sizeof(foo()) / sizeof(foo()[0])
      , sizeof(foo()[0]) / sizeof(foo()[0][0])
      , sizeof(foo()[0][0]) / sizeof(foo()[0][0][0])
      , sizeof(foo()[0][0][0]) / sizeof(foo()[0][0][0][0])
> vec;

      BOOST_MPL_ASSERT(( equal< vec, vector_c<int,9,8,7,6> > ));

Sizes may become very huge, though.

I don't understand it.
