My comment about "destructive" read shouldn't be taken to imply that it
actually obliterates the data after its read. E.g., if you are using a
memory mapped file as a back end, you can run a different algorithm on
the same data by "resetting" the series by remapping the file.

If you want to push the data, and calculate many things in one pass, the
library you want to use is the Accumulators library.

It's been accepted into Boost, but I haven't committed it to CVS yet.

I don't follow you. What do you mean?
