Subject: [boost] [type_at] Variadic template utility

While experimenting with varidic templates of the upcoming standard i discovered that quite often one would need to extract a type from parameter pack at specified position. While the task is trivial it would be quite handy to have a ready tool for this purpose, rather that specifying one yourself every time. You can find source code consisting of a single header at Vault/Utilities/type_at.hpp The usage is simple: boost::type_at<index, some_type_0, some_type_1, some_type_2, some_type_n>::type corresponds to some_type_index where index is in range [0..n]. For example: boost::type_at<2, int, float, char, long>::type corresponds to char. I hope this will be useful.
