This looks very similar to the CONTAINER macro from dbDefs.h, although slightly cleaner to use since the C++ compiler can deduce both types from the pointer-to-member argument. Is this as type-safe as the GNU version of CONTAINER, which checks that the member's data type matches the pointer? I note that CONTAINER works for C code, whereas this is pure C++.

My main concern is getting the name right; since we're already using the word Container would it make sense to use that instead of Enclosure?

Also, should we move the CONTAINER macro into this header (with guards to allow it to be included from C code)?
