And one more piece of bad news:
1. the iterator_helpers are still broken because with a non-const value type
and a const pointer type you get a non-const iterator, because:
2. dereferenceable<> is arguably still broken because it takes a value_type
parameter instead of a pointer (type) parameter
Fixing problem 2 involves breaking backward-compatibility. I don't think
there's a clever fix for this problem. I'm inclined to fearlessly make the
fix, but I need guidance from the group on what to do about it.
