Yes please, let's move next_prior.hpp to Iterator while we're on this topic.
This dependency is not the end of the world by any means, but it would still
be a small step in the right direction.
It's true that next/prior are not limited to iterators, and that's fine,
there's no need to deprecate their use for non-iterators.
