Another idea. The any_pointer could be made lightweighted. ScopedGuard trick
can help, on one hand, to hide ugly container type behind typedef'd
reference, and, on another hand, to let the compiler remember the "origin".
I suspect the compiler have to be very very clever.

// aka ScopedGuard; library code
typedef crange_base const& crange_base_ref;

// user code
for(crange_base_ref r = make_crange(cont); r; ++r)
    *r += 2;
