Correct, but in the case of difference_range, storing iterators by value leads to 2^N storage bloat when stacking N difference_iterators. You can avoid this with factorable iterators (Dave) or by storing ranges by value and avoiding copying containers either by explicitly wrapping containers as "by ref" (Giovanni) or by range trait (me).
