Indeed, this was also on my todo list.

Would be great !

I'm not quite following you here.
But what I think you're referring to (and what I've also been wondering
about) is that strided_iterator can easily jump past the past-the-end
iterator and thus begin undefined. So you need some way to detect this.
One way is to provide the iterator_adaptor also the correct past-the-end
iterator of the container. This would however make the strided_iterator
less standard.
