Dunno, but there are two things, firstly references, aka pointers, and secondly
iterators aka pointers. That said, the runtime performance issue is secondary.
For someone
like me I think it needs a whole lot of useage examples, so I can copy paste
them. Anyway, for my 'Quan'tity matrices, its seems to hit the spot :-)

Let's separate compile time performance from runtime performance.

Boost.Fusion certainly has got something ... not quite sure what yet ;-)
