(There was a typo in my reply to your post, but I think the code was
still understandable)

Sorry, I mistook your original post as wondering "how and why", not
just "why", and given that I didn't know "why", I answered "how".

I agree, it would be nice if it was (almost) idiomatic, and you could
do something like:

averager total = kdtree.within_bounds(bounds,
total.avg /= total.num;

within_bounds would have to return the OutputIterator if it was to
remain generic, and at the call site you would need to access it's
function object, just like you suggested.

I guess we'll have to wait for a developer response as to why it was
implemented the way it was...
