Cool. I have a little problem seeing how it works with acyclic graphs.
For example, there are many ways to do this. Which one do we pick?
I think the container of containers case meets 90% or more of all use
cases. A container of containers of containers can be done manually by
applying it twice.
Even trees, surely they provide some kind of iteration already?
(Like std::map/std::set). So what is special here?
