Great :)

Here comes the iterators tag issue: I have to take a look to some
implementations for list and vector. Depending on their implementation
we should:

  a) stick to the implementations for list

  b) implement specializations for rank_list (this might require a new
iterators tag, I guess)

  c) tag iterators as random access and use the algorithms of vector
(bad idea, see rationale)

That's a great idea. I knew I had to write more examples, but I think
that they will be much more useful if I explain them in the docs in
tutorial form.

Thanks a lot.
