    It looks nice, but I have a few comments:

   1) The name isn't informative. How about something like
mpl::all_combinations to better say what the function actually does?

   2) You should mention in the documentation that the number of
sequences returned can get very big very fast. For instance, given six
input sequences with 10 elements each, this function will return 1
million sequences of 6 elements each.
