ok. now that's clearer (while the syntax is rather obfuscating)

well, this will be my approach after this first discovery round. I like
it because post-processing will give me more freedom to manipulate the
sink object.

I know this (good) tutorial (yours... congratulation!).
unfortunately I was really confused by the example with
BOOST_FUSION_ADAPT_CLASS_NAMED in a first attempt to bind one of my
class with Spirit/Qi/karma. I cannot find this macro in Boost 1.53.
But see:

$ tail -3 boost/version.hpp
#define BOOST_LIB_VERSION "1_53"

$ tail -3 boost/fusion/include/adapt_assoc_class.hpp
#include <boost/fusion/adapted/class/adapt_assoc_class.hpp>

$ ls boost/fusion/adapted/class/adapt_assoc_class.hpp
ls: cannot access boost/fusion/adapted/class/adapt_assoc_class.hpp: No
such file or directory
Seems something is broken or badly cleaned in new versions of Boost.

Then I found some *_AST_* macros. But it is too early for me to
fight with it. I have found almost no simple examples to use it.
Now I realize that AST probably refers to Abstract Syntax Tree and a
probably a new underlying technique used in Spirit...

Many thanks for your help.
