Umm, it is *amortized* O(1), as allowed by 24.1/8. Without amortization
being taken into account, ++ and -- have a worst case complexity O(log n),
if I'm not missing something. Although not explicitly stated in the standard,
the amortization here has to be done for a complete traversal from begin
to end.
