I think I understood. Although the statement looks powerful, I think it is a
bit of "cheating" because setting up the index vectors tgt and src is done
in a loop, by dimension.

I would say this is a typical example that I would solve by recursion. For
the case of a nested std::vector, please see attached. Uncomment lines in
main for other dimensions, to see that working. Add some more goodies for
sizes and stuff and you're done for any arbitrary nesting and/or dimension
of data. Not sure if it is the the most elegant solution, though.
