Just because I posted something about a new iterator adaptor, and I
happened to take a look at the boost sandbox, that David was referring
me to, I'd like to ask: is what is in the sandbox intended to replace or
to complement the current <boost/iterator_adaptors.hpp>?
The reason I am asking is that a brief reading failed to point out how
what's in the sandbox provides reverse_iterator_adaptor<Iterator>, and
all the existing ones. So am I correct in assuming that the code in the
sandbox is intended to replace some/all the machinery (first 700 lines
or so) of the current <boost/iterator_adaptors.hpp>? that it's internal
to the implementation of the adaptors? and that we'll be able to use in
the future the iterator adaptors unchanged in syntax and semantic?
