And as a matter of fact, that IS the intent. The proxy object is a public
class in namespace boost::fusion::extension named class_member_proxy (terser
name suggestion welcome).

I hope you guys see now from the example above that it is a very typical
representation of an OOP *class*. I'd say that this example is the most
common form of class that needs to be adapted and that the only way
to satisfy this requirement is to do it the way it is done now. It's
not perfect, it's not as clean as I hoped. I too don't like proxies
since C++ does not allow you to write perfect proxies. But I see no
other way around.
