Curently they are not, unless the iterator happens to be a pointer.

The trouble in that case would be that my implementation used void*
underneith and hence has special iterators that does a reinterpret_cast.
A reinterpret_cast appears here and there in the container's implmentation

So given that iterators in general are not supported, would you then prefer
the ptr_ prefix?
