Boost.bimap provides the first and second function objects. They will
work (when used with transform iterators) with all map-like objects.

It is very hard to use overloaded functions with boost.bind or lambda,
or as parameters to
transform iterators. This is why I explicitly said function object.
About get<N> not working
with pairs, fusion at_c works just fine for pairs, tuples and all
