 From one of your previous post's, the output is a crossproduct which
requires a nested for_each loop to printout first the rows
and for each row the elements in that row. That's the only reason
for the static print_each and struct element_printer.
I realize now that should have been commented to indicate it was
not part of the solution but only used to demonstrate the
correctness, which I hoped the printout:

Running 2 test cases...

would have demonstrated.

Also, I am not sure that cross_product_view:

    does not provide an actual sequence adapter

because the superclass of cross_product_view is a transform_view and the
first page of chapter 7 states:

   A sequence view ... is a lazy adapter

So, in view of that, could you explain why it's not a sequence adapter?
