Thanks for the heads up. Laziness is of course undesirable for inherently
strict algorithms. In particular, numeric metafunctions should probably be
strict; I'm planning to use a constexpr-based implementation for those.

As for sequence algorithms, I'm currently benchmarking several different
solutions to try and see what's the best alternative.
