Correct me if my thinking is incorrect but I think a solution using a
variable number of template specialization has an implicit O(f(N))
complexity where f(N) is some non-constant function of N. The compiler
needs to iterate through all the specializations in order to find the
match, which is the same as you explicitly iterating through some sort
of fusion data structure. It may optimize this somehow but it still
isn't O(1).

Interesting puzzle. Can't wait to see all the answers.
