hello Steven,

I do appreciate your prompt reply.

Yes, my simple modification is obviously not complete and will
cause other problems including those you mentioned. But I
believe we are not at the situation that we should bear one of
the two kinds of problems. There must be a sound solution, I guess.

Or, in other words, in the situation as that I mentioned in my first
post, should I use the ugly-looking explicit for loops instead of using
the seemingly elegant iterator adaptor approach? :-)

Thanks again for your time, Steven.
