Remarkable, given the unstability of that old compiler.

I don't understand the question. What do you mean by
"key value" and by "an N index_type container"? In case
the following is somewhat related to your problem,
here's how one can produce the key part of each element
of a given key-based index (uncompiled, expect typos.)

// multi_index_t is some multi-index container.
multi_index_t m;

// index N-th is key-based (for instance, ordered.)
typedef nth_index<multi_index_t,N>::type index_t;
const index_t& i=get<N>(m);
for(index_t::const_iterator it=i.begin();it!=i.end();++it){

This code uses the member function key_extractor(), which
returns a copy of the internal key extractor, to extract
the key part of a given element.

In case your question is not addressed by the snippet
above, I'd appreciate if you could explain it a little more
clearly, possibly stating what your final goal is.

Thank you for using Boost.MultiIndex,
