Sorry for being out of contact, but I only have time to delete without
reading most of the boost stuff for now.
The action of iter[n] is the same as *(iter + n) and in both cases
should be a reference or reference to const. I know that the
standard says convertable to T, but forward iterator has it right
and there is an issue.
