/// \brief member_at::side idiom to access relation values and types using metaprogramming. 

This tags are used to specify which member you want to acces when using a metafunction over
a symmetrical type. The idea is to be able to write code like:

result_of::get<member_at::left,relation>::type data = get<member_at::left>(rel);

The relation class supports this idiom even when the elements are tagged. This is useful
because a user can decide to start tagging in any moment of the development.

value_type_of, pair_by, pair_type_by.
