They iterate over int[4][5] in my suggestion.

This is, admittedly, not a "true" multidimensional array, it's just how C
arrays work.

    int a[3][4][5];

    for( auto& x: a )
        // x is int (&)[4][5] here

This is consistent with begin() returning T* == int(*)[4][5] and op[]
returning T& == int(&)[4][5].
