Nice idea, but alas not applicable here since I want member etc. to
remain C++03 compatible.
Another approach would be to write a template<auto Member> struct
key_impl{using type=...;}
metafunction class here all the partial specialization goes and then do
template<auto Member> using key=typename key_impl<Member>::type. Either way,
the issue raised by Dominique does not cause any trouble AFAICS.
