This has been my experience too - that the get<N>() notation tends to
obscure, and
effectively introduce another unnecessary level of indirection. As I
it, what tuples offer is that they're a building block for type sequences,
which enable
them to be handled generically, ie become the foundation for Boost.Fusion.
