Now that I think of it, the code at:

Does that, but, unlike fold, it's specific for the factor template. In
addition, it uses:


to access the elements in the TypeSequence used to create the product
(or tuple, to use the c++ standard term). Since that's O(1) time
complexity, it should be no problem.

Now, if we could just modify fold to do something similar.
Unfortunately, the problem with fold is that the arguments of the
partial result, ForwardOp<PreviousPartial,CurrentElement>,
always vary; hence, they cannot be named easily with something like:

   factor<Indices, TypeMap, Index+1>

as in product.hpp :(

Maybe this would provide you (and me) with some ideas for
how to do this.

-best of luck
