Yes. During my tests I ended up wrapping this tuple of references in
order to emulate e.g. rvalue references, conversions between references,
collapsing, etc. The "basic" tuples doesn't support every operation
that's needed to emulate the standard semantics. In the prototype not
all everything is functioning, I stopped as some point when I noticed
where it leads to and just tested some basic usage.
