'fraid so, unless you can convince me there's a free solution.

BTW, it doesn't seem like the shared_ptr works anyway, since the algorithm
might well copy the iterator internally and move one of the copies,
expecting the other one to remain unmodified.

Okay, Aleksey, it's all yours. Please be sure to update the docs and add an
assignable check to the test. BTW, I don't mind if you clean up the tests a
bit; they're functional but not pretty ;-)
