We're working on it, albeit slowly.

It will. In the meantime, see

Of course,
has been altered slightly to match an implementation we haven't
finished yet ;-(

Thanks for pointing that out. We have AccessCategory now, but
TransversalCatagory is still missing.

That's fixed now, although the interface has changed noticeably (it
also has separate Access and Traversal category arguments).

FWIW, in the implementation you have, Category is either an old-style
tag, or derived from boost::iterator_tag.

We'll fix it.

Thanks very much!
