Can you give an example?

So basically something like

   rng | transfilt( boost::static_caster<T>() )


   rng | transfilt<T>()


   rng | static_filter<T>()
   rng | dynamic_filter<T>()

? (Of course, the latter syntax fails because we can't overload cast
operators. Maybe we should create our own in the form of
boost::static_caster, boost::dynamic_caster?).
