Well, one thing is performance due to efficient iteration over segmented
data structure. Another issue is just flattening.

About segmentation.
One approach is a new type of iterators with specialized algorithms
for basically all algorithms. That's a lot of algorithms that has to be
implemented again.

So how the h*** do we avoid that? Can we avoid that?

I'm thinking that some fat iterator with some internal book keeping
might help. But then we have the problem of the end iterator taking
up much space just because the types must match. Clearly ranges without
iterators is superior in this context.
