Very neat concept.

I realise you are talking about something much more general, but I would
like to see the syntactic sugar of operator+ still available for
concatenation / union if appropriate. Also part of the magic to make such
stuff efficient is being able to resize or pre-allocate the destination as
part of operator=. Do have thoughts on approaching that part of it?

Curious as to how the rtl going to relate to the vtl and iterator libs.
Your view?
