Correct. Basically this would require a boost equivalent of the safe_iterator (that's what its called
in gcc), which could be used to wrap the boost iterators for debugging. Although this is not a
trivial task, it seems preferable to me over leaving members uninitialised for the sake of (arguably)
improved debugging capability.
