Sure! It would be a nice feture for Boost.Assign.
However, it doesn't close the debate for me about a constructible array ;-)
It is not that I don't like Boost.Assign or similar constructs, but I really
think a good old constructor is far superior when available.
Since people don't like my initial proposition, I then propose a
"constructible_array" or another name that has the same behaviour than
Boost.Array, except with construction.
