Could you elaborate on this? I'm interested on how to apply this tecnhique
for my own purposes. Thank you,

well, first of all, it requires the algorithm to move elements around if it
can (so nothing will work until C++0x).

secondly, your reference-type of the iterator is a proxy that can be moved
where moving it actually moves the pointer underneith.

maybe there is more to it, but Howard assured my that the algorithms in
question would never do a lvalue to rvalue conversion
(from the iterators reference to its value type)
