To be honest, I suppose your proposed API would be a viable
alternative. I think part of the rationale for the current API design
was to permit facile mapping to iterator operations:
iterator comparison to end => operator bool()
iterator operator*() => get()
iterator operator++() => operator()()
Perhaps, having become accustomed to the present API, I'm simply
rationalizing its design. I'm sorry if I caused offense.
