That would be good. Wouldn't it be easier, though, for a special case like
an array container (as opposed to a vector container) to just add a member
function to the iterator that would return a raw pointer to the internal
representation? For usage in C++ algorithms, you could certainly define
interators to do random access as though the array were multidimensional,
but you couldn't hand them over to an assembler routine.
