Hi Rob

Thanks for the positive comments.

That is precisely the purpose for swap<>() and swap_in_place<>()

I find it very useful when reading memory-mapped binary files containing aligned
homogeneous data. Also, if the data is already in the order you need, the
iterator factory simply returns the original iterator, meaning it's zero cost in
that case.

I look forward to any further questions/comments you may have.
