Oh yes, proxy references. vector<bool>. Database containers. Distinguishing
reads from writes. Copy on write.
Do you think that this can be made to work? I'm somewhat on the pessimistic
side. We have something - the STL containers/iterators - that works, more or
less, and solves real problems. Trying to evolve the ultimate data view
model from it may not be worth the effort.
