What we need is a generic range adaptor that can make a container of
containers look like a "flat" sequence.

I suggest the syntax

   rngOfContainers | boost::adaptors::flattened

and the underlying iterator should be up to bidirectional (if the
underlying two container types support it).

Anyone interested in implementing this?
