In my (admittedly limited) testing, I agree. In some places in my code,
I've re-bloated iterators I had previously un-bloated simply for
performance reasons. But I've also noticed that at least in some
situations, the optimizer can see through the pointer-to-range stored in
the iterator. That happens when the use of the iterator is not far from
where the iterator was created.
