Are there really use cases where implementations should work seamlessly for
both non-iterators and iterators? Or are there (common) non-iterator types
that share the iterators' "operator++() but not operator+()" issue? I
understand the problem that next/prior solves for iterators, but when
dealing with numeric types, I'm thinking there's always binary +/- operators
