The functions now detect if the first operand supports arithmetic operators
(+=, + -=, -) and uses them if they are defined. The related pull request for
Boost.Iterator makes iterator_facade to not define these operators if the
iterator doesn't support them. If your case does not involve Boost.Iterator
iterators then you need to make a similar change to your iterators that you
use with next()/prior().
