Should the operation generalize? Would this also be a use case?

T a, b, c = xxx(a, b, f()); // with f() -> tuple<T,T,T>

If it is, I don't think that operator%() will give you the same results
(could your write c = a % b % f()?). As for a name, I like "truss" as in
"truss this result to these objects". Just a thought.
