Hi Vicente.

I think these would be great components of a "bit-based" proposal. I think
I'd like to see a compact or compressed vector to replace the 1- and 2-bit
color maps in Boost (and generalize the concept), and a compact tuple, which
(I think) is basically what you described for the RGB structure. I think the
pointer_plus_bits may make the project a bit extensive for the summer, but
definitely something to think about as an extension.

On my part, I'd like to see compact_vector, compact_tuple and tools for bit
and bitmask manipulation, with the pointer space reuse being an optional

Would you be willing to mentor?
