This solution assumes the two sets are of equal size; what if we 
don't have such assumption? i.e. we only know the two sets 
divided into two logical groups.

I've tried something like this: the AliasSeq specify the logical 

    printRandomElemAddr(AliasSeq!(extraA, extraB, extraC, extraD), 
a, b, c);

but cannot make it work.

(I'm asking for a more general solution, e.g. what if we have 3, 
or N sets of variadic parameters?)

Looks like we can only pass 1 variadic parameters, then the 
question is what's the best way to divide it?

Is there any special marker (variable or type?) can be used to 
divide? and what's the staticSplit?
