OOPS. I just did a compare of that "earlier" version it it looks
the same as the more recent one I attached, and that one doesn't
even use the Boost.Array. Looking back at the revision history
of the array_recur.cpp on my disk indicates I had to use
the variadic_templates vector_c:

because of compile errors, and I think I had to abandon
boost::array (substituted the new array_base)
because boost::array did not have a CTOR taking an
std::initializer_list, which is something I wanted.

Sorry for noise.
