I'm wondering if there's an interest in a container wrapper that will
more strongly type indexing via the  operator and .at() function.
The purpose would be mainly for handling communications packets, where
specific indices have distinct meanings. A container can be created that
will allow only a specific enum types to be used as an index, lessening
the possibility that the wrong indices are used for a container.
I mentioned it in comp.std.c++ in the following post:
And after a few comments, I threw together a "typed_index_wrapper" for
converting a std::vector, std::deque or boost::array into containers
with typed indexing functions:
Do you think I should go through the process of boostifying this, or is
it somewhat of a trivial result?
