Also, BOOST_PP_SEQ_FOR_EACH_I is independent from BOOST_PP_SEQ_FOR_EACH,
so if you only need two levels of nesting you can use both of them:
#define INNER(R, DATA, I, ELEM)\
#define OUTER(R, DATA, ELEM)\
<< BOOST_PP_SEQ_FOR_EACH_I(INNER, ~, ELEM) >>,
BOOST_PP_SEQ_FOR_EACH(OUTER, ~, ((1)(2)) ((3)(4)) )
gives the expected output. Otherwise you need to resort to either
flattening the structure first, or doing your own iteration.
