joint_view_iterator needs to store these info:

a) an iterator from the first sequence (left)
b) an iterator from the second sequence (right)

then, if you have a stacked joint_view_iterators, the outermost
joint_view_iterator will be quite hefty.

I wonder if there's a better formulation other than segmented
iterators. Hmmm... yeah, there might be room for optimization.
