That's wrong actually. Since all the local iterators are the same, then
their local iterators must be the same too.
So segmented iterators wouldn't help to only check for alignment once it
has been reached I think. I would have to properly try to implement one,
but it's not particularly practical to do.
Anyway, my belief is that my alternative to segmented iterators is more
