/* A utility for expanding a tuple into a variadic argument list.
 * Based on std::index_sequence. */

/**
 * Example usage:
 *
 * Problem:
 *
 *   You have a variadic function Foo:
 *
 *     template <typename... Args> void Foo(Args...);
 *
 *   And a variadic function Bar, which contains a tuple:
 *
 *     template <typename... Args>
 *     void Bar() {
 *       // ...
 *       Tuple<Args...> t;
 *     }
 *
 *   And inside Bar, you want to call Foo with the elements of the tuple as
 *   arguments to Foo.
 *
 *   You want to write:
 *
 *     Foo(Get<0>(t), Get<1>(t), ..., Get<N>(t))
 *
 *   but you can't literally write that, because N is different for different
 *   instantiations of Bar.
 *
 * Solution:
 *
 *   Write a helper function which takes the tuple, and an index sequence
 *   containing indices corresponding to the tuple indices.
 *
 *     template <typename... Args, size_t... Indices>
 *     void Helper(const Tuple<Args...>& t, IndexSequence<Indices>)
 *     {
 *       Foo(Get<Indices>(t)...);
 *     }
 *
 *   Assuming 'Indices...' are 0, 1, ..., N - 1, where N is the size of the
 *   tuple, pack expansion will expand the pack 'Get<Indices>(t)...' to
 *   'Get<0>(t), Get<1>(t), ..., Get<N>(t)'.
 *
 *   Finally, call the helper, creating the index sequence to pass in like so:
 *
 *     template <typename... Args>
 *     void Bar() {
 *       // ...
 *       Tuple<Args...> t;
 *       Helper(t, typename IndexSequenceFor<Args...>::Type());
 *     }
