Yes that's it.
I tried something similar, using boost::flyweight (hence my question
about scoped flyweights).

I tried to write another kind of index for BMI some time ago, and if
I remember correctly, there is no way to map an element to multiple
values of an index. Do you think of anything to point into the code of
BMI to try doing it ?
Do you have any kind of documentation about writing an index for BMI
(to be sure what I'm writing is safe) ?

Thanks for this library !
