In theory, it would be possible for users to define custom base_t_f
class and provide custom collection of types of projections.
It could be improved if parameters type is a tuple.
Though at this moment, it sounds like a science fiction I think -
no need to dig it.

Back to complicated code, I'm not sure how it complicates it.
If "complex-looking code" would be the only reasons, I think it's better
to leave it as is.
