  // Comparison operator implementation. The library supplied operators

  // iterator types. I.e. the library provides all operators
  // for all mutable/constant iterator combinations.
  //
  // Note though that this kind of interoperability for constant/mutable
  // iterators is not required by the standard for container iterators.
  // All the standard asks for is a conversion mutable -> constant.
  // Most standard library implementations nowadays provide fully interoperable
  // iterator implementations, but there are still heavily used implementations
  // that do not provide them. (Actually it's even worse, they do not provide
  // them for only a few iterators.)
  //
  // ?? Maybe a BOOST_ITERATOR_NO_FULL_INTEROPERABILITY macro should
  //    enable the user to turn off mixed type operators
  //
  // The library takes care to provide only the right operator overloads.
  // I.e.
  //
  // bool operator==(Iterator,      Iterator);
  // bool operator==(ConstIterator, Iterator);
  // bool operator==(Iterator,      ConstIterator);
  // bool operator==(ConstIterator, ConstIterator);
  //
  //   ...
  //
  // In order to do so it uses c++ idioms that are not yet widely supported
  // by current compiler releases. The library is designed to degrade gracefully
  // in the face of compiler deficiencies. In general compiler
  // deficiencies result in less strict error checking and more obscure
  // error messages, functionality is not affected.
  //
  // For full operation compiler support for "Substitution Failure Is Not An Error"
  // (aka. enable_if) and boost::is_convertible is required.
  //
  // The following problems occur if support is lacking.
  //
  // Pseudo code
  //
  // ---------------
  // AdaptorA<Iterator1> a1;
  // AdaptorA<Iterator2> a2;
  //
  // // This will result in a no such overload error in full operation
  // // If enable_if or is_convertible is not supported
  // // The instantiation will fail with an error hopefully indicating that
  // // there is no operator== for Iterator1, Iterator2
  // // The same will happen if no enable_if is used to remove
  // // false overloads from the templated conversion constructor
  // // of AdaptorA.
  //
  // a1 == a2;
  // ----------------
  //
  // AdaptorA<Iterator> a;
  // AdaptorB<Iterator> b;
  //
  // // This will result in a no such overload error in full operation
  // // If enable_if is not supported the static assert used
  // // in the operator implementation will fail.
  // // This will accidently work if is_convertible is not supported.
  //
