I think it's possible to create iterator adaptor which makes default
constructed iterator denote the end. Hey, it's 10 mins effort, see
I'm not yet sure if this is better/worse than views, but definitely
Collection Traits need to have special support for Filter iterator. Either
we need views, or we need such wrapper iterator.

Where can I look at this lib, and how it's different/related to the views

Yes, that's what I'd like. Only, I *really* think that the function should
be called just 'filter'. But that's just personal opinion.
