Subject: [boost] tie alternative?

OK, BOOST_FOREACH aside, iterating over a range returned as a pair of
iterators can be painful and ugly:
vertex_iterator pv, ve;
tie(pv, ve) = vertices(g); // unpack the pair returned by vertices
for (; pv != pe; ++pv)
However, we can make it much nicer, e.g.:
for (vertex_iterator pv,ve = xxx(pv,vertices(g)); pv != ve; ++pv)
My only problem is how to spell xxx. The attached proof-of-concept uses
operator%, but I don't feel particularly good about that choice either.
