Actually you don't even need a new type compressed_tuple. You could
put this functionality straight into tuple. It'd be a royal pain to
do for tuple sizes greater than 3 or 4 though. Dave, how many empty
members do you find yourself glomming together? I often have several
potentially empty members but usually have at least that many non-
empty members to spread them around on (I have one example where
wanted to glom two empty members onto a non-empty member).
