Is (the proposed) Boost.Interfaces lib able to handle the following

template<typename T>
interface IIterator
  T& operator*()const;

template<typename T>
interface IContainer
  IIterator<T> begin();
  IIterator<T> end();

It is not the issue of specifying an operator as part of the interface
IIterator (this'll be taken care of in the future according to the
docs), but the
fact that IContainer::begin is required to return an object implicitly
to IIterator<T>. Can Boost.Interfaces do that?

PS: Just for motivation, I' thinkthi s idiom could be taken advantage of

in a possible implementation of a dynamic multi-index container.
