Hi Lubomir,

thanks for the long reply. I really appreciate this. I think we have both
made our points clear. Now I'd like to hear the opinion of others...

Exactly. But my favourite solution would be to extend the language so that
one could implement separate lvalue and rvalue versions of operator* and
operator[] (similar to the pre- and postfix increment operator). But I
don't know whether this is possible, especially considering backward
