I have been reading you code, and refactoring my own proposals several
times. I'm not used to this kind of meta programming, so it did take
me quite some time to understand the code you have proposed, but I'm
learning, so thank you..

I will try to answer the questions

This might also be the very core of my problem. I did some tries where
I used the c++11 "using" facility to bind all the template arguments
except the offset, it did work, but the usage of the interface was not

Instead I have now fractured the design to avoid the this calculation
outside (like you suggested). This seems to work out better.

Pretty much, plus some extra stuff ;-)

- It must be possible to specify arrays of enums
- It must be possible to group enums.

But I think I got some ideas to move on, so thanks a lot.
