/* A composite key stores n key extractors and "computes" the
 * result on a given value as a packed reference to the value and
 * the composite key itself. Actual invocations to the component
 * key extractors are lazily performed on comparison time.
 * As the other key extractors in Boost.MultiIndex, composite_key<T,...>
 * is  overloaded to work on chained pointers to T and reference_wrappers
 * of T.
 * composite_key_compare is overloaded to enable comparisons between
 * composite_key_results and tuples of values. Comparison is done
 * lexicographically on on the maximum common number of elements of the
 * operands. This allows searching for incomplete keys
 */

/* This user_definable macro limits the number of elements of a composite
 * key; useful for shortening resulting symbol names (MSVC++ 6.0, for
 * instance has problems coping with very long symbol names.)
 * NB: This cannot exceed the maximum number of arguments of
 * boost::tuple. In Boost 1.31, the limit is 10.
