Argh!!! *Grumble* *Grumble*
This is exactly the first solution I came up with (and spent a while
on :( ) but it didn't compile because in the 2nd "when", I used
mpl::vector<A> instead of vector1<A> and I didn't manage to figure out
what the compile error meant. I tried the vararg and my other solution
out of despair.
Actually it is only almost the same solution, I actually had both
"when" in different order but I suppose in this case it doesn't
matter, right?

Now I know it ;-)
I think this would be a good point for a "tips and tricks section". I
bet I won't be the last bitten by this one.

Thanks a lot!
