I guess we have to put the sequence algorithms into their own namespace.

In my view, sequence objects should be mutable in much the same way that
iterators are mutable. They should not be passed by reference. Then there
is no problem with temporaries.

I would no more write:

    sort( Sequence &s );

then I would write:

    sort( iterator &first, iterator &last );
