Why can't you use boost::enable_if and only enable the get<> template if the
argument is const? This imposes the restriction that you actually invoke
the get<> template as follows:

const int m = get<const int>(p, "int");

const int* m2 = get<const int*>(p, "int*");

but it still seems to work. Is this unsatisfactory for some reason?
