Fusion is quite a big departure from Boost.Tuples. TR1 tuples
is a mere fraction of the entire library which comprises
sequences (vector, list, set, map, etc.), algorithms (for_each,
find, find_if, accumulate, etc.) and iterators. I intend to ask
for a formal boost review as soon as all pieces of the puzzle
are put in place (development is ongoing). I intend to make
it a library on its own. As for TR1 tuples, I shall provide
a slim wrapper over fusion that shall cover the TR1 interface.
Boost.Tuple can then #include and forward to that perhaps via a
