I would like to see the code. Anyway, what would the advanteges of this
approach? Wouldn't it be slower because the the iterator adapter needs to
store the values which
are then copied? (I must admit, that speed was not really an initial
concern, I focused on easy use). Another issue is the syntax, with the stuff
above, I don't
thnk any newbie will use it very often.
