                <note author="D. Abrahams">
                    This failure is caused by a compiler bug. Templated operators
                    that combine different iterators built with iterator_facade or
                    iterator_adaptor may be present in an overload set even when those
                    iterators are not interoperable. The usual result is that error
                    messages generated by illegal use of these operators will be of
                    lower quality.
