The attached code is a revision of the previously posted code.
It does not properly calculate the size of the storage needed
for the compressed enums; however, IIUC this could easily be
corrected using Nevin Liber's suggestion about using log2.

The int enums_offsets<>::buffer[] in the real code would
be what you've called:
in your OP. As mentioned, the size is incorrect but that's
easily remedied.

The revised code also illustrates the use of CRTP to allow access
of the super types to the storage buffer. These super types
use the overloaded get's with the proper TAG argument to
access the proper portion of the buffer.

The output of the attached is:


and was compiled with gcc4.7.
