ah I hadn't thought about the interaction of the operator% with lambda.

What would the situation be if the operator% were out of the class ?
If it improves the usability with lambda, that would seem a reason
enough, for me. In fact I had made it a member at first, because it
needs access to the private data, but I had to put the real code in
out-of-class functions anyhow because of msvc6 problems with member
function templates, so I might as well make the whole operator% declared
out of class.
