I hadn't noticed the uage of "end - it". In any case, that can be replaced
with std::distance(it,end) to work with forward iterators.

Just because the vast majority of sequences will be random access doesn't mean
we should limit ourselves to that, when it is so easy to allow the use of
Forward Iterators.
