One thing to watch for is that almost every implementation of istream_iterator
that exists "reads ahead" - so for instance if you copy 10 elements from an
istream_iterator using *i++, it will actually extract 11 elements, often
resulting in one going missing. It's actually not difficult to write an
istream_iterator that doesn't do this, but it's not clear what the standard
mandates in this area.
