[SAoC] data structures

So, what I'm worried about is making member indexed arrays in 
such a way that is standards complaint.

I have written a (semi-) functional aosoa, but my abstractions 
there where very much mine, and heavy template abuse *to the 
point it only worked on one compiler*.

struct cow{
   vec2 pos;
   vec2 vel;
   int milk;
   void update(){
memberindexedarray!(cow,pos) cows;

Making that work while deconstruction the cow into pieces is 
possible the abstraction I used in aosoa was "pointy" or roughly
struct pointy!cow{
   vec2* pos;
   partialcow* partialcow_;
   ... etc

with allot of really jank code that I was told repeatably was 

While this is simpler then what I had, its still the same sort of 
problem and I expect to be playing with the edges of the 
compilers definition where the bugs are.
