... but is sometimes done in practice when the generic framework doesn't
provide the concepts for optimal implementations; e.g.
std::map::lower_bound. In the STL, that would be the case with for_each
over segmented sequences. A better solution, however, would be to define
a concept for segmented iterators and write a generic segmented for_each
