good point. Moreover, with the current cost model, it is enough to
expose only the cases where N==1 and N==Dynamic. Even for the simplest
expression 2*m, if N=2, then it gets evaluated.

Of course, to be future proof it would still make sense to expose the
N=2 case but others are really useless, so what about defining only
the following three types (without the generic template one):

typedef typename ei_nested<Derived,1>::type            Nested;
typedef typename ei_nested<Derived,2>::type            NestedForTwoAccess;
typedef typename ei_nested<Derived,Dynamic>::type NestedForMultipleAccess;

alternative names: NestedOnce, NestedTwice, NestedManyTimes ???
