I don't know if this helps. But the serialization library has
a section called dataflow iterators. It's really about
composition of iterators. So you can

a) start with an original sequence o_i
a) make a derivation from transform iterator - call it t_i
b) make a deriveration from filter iterator - call it f-i
c) make a composition of the two with - f-i(t_i(o_i). This
composite returns a the original sequence filtered and transformed.

It's all done at compile time so when you compile
for release - the final result is very fast.
