I still don't know why, but I know you are always right.

I understood it probably.
If as_vector means "copy", rvalue should be passed to FunctionObject.

In fact, I'm trying to implement "zip".
If interested, see:
as_vector intercepts mutability.
I'm now lost, but I will retry.

I really apologize my mega-noise.
