`function_input_iterator`'s implementation looks better than that of
`generator_iterator`. However, the name of the former is not appealing.
"generate" is a standard word to Range enthusiasts -- it is used like
`generate(non_pure_func) | take(10)`.

Thus, I would like to deprecate `generator_iterator` first and then rename
`function_input_iterator` to `generator_iterator`.
