You might as well special case fusion sequences.

Indeed, you could specialize all range adaptors to call the fusion
equivalent when passed fusion sequences, but then it wouldn't be clear
what the return type is, since an iterator adaptor and a fusion
expression are quite different things.

This is already a problem with ranges, as return types are not well
documented (and sometimes are in a detail namespace...). This could be
solved with a result_of namespace like fusion does.
