  Definitely, this solution is elegant and better readable. Plus, it
  passes the test I use for cyclic_iterator (in the sandbox) after
  a minor modification:

  For unknown reason, MSVC chokes on

    typename std::iterator_traits<BaseIterator>::value_type

  twice ('iterator_category' : is not a member of 'operator``global amespace'''),
  but accepts

    typename boost::iterator_value<BaseIterator>::type

  I suggest to add your implementation to Boost.Iterator! Does this
  require a review, or mini review, if there is something like that?
