That's my understanding too, but probably an example will better show me
that a specialized find algorithm would bring.

Yep, and the geometry has not much to do with that actually. find_if simply
returns the iterator passed as the "end" argument, so as long as your call
to find_if and your subsequent comparison are consistent in this regard,
there should be no problem.
