I'm assuming that with the resolution of issue 198 it is now possible to
cache the value (of the correct type) in the iterator, and so the reference
type is not a proxy, but rather the correct type.

But there may be other problems, such as performance, or as you suggest
below, the interface may be conceptually wrong.

That still leaves dyn_bitset and bitset to be unified:-)
