That is what I mean. You have to provide the iterators, and that is intrusive.
Nevertheless, that isn't really a big deal. I don't think that this is
necessarily a worthwhile goal on philosophical grounds. Template
metaprogramming is still in its infancy. As of right now, we still have a
reasonably chance at uniformity. Specifically designing the library to be
easily adaptable to alternate implementations of the same thing certainly
doesn't encourage uniformity.
