This seems to be the line we have trouble with, as it could lead to an
expensive copy. I haven't fully tested it yet, but I wonder if this
line would be better expressed as:
typeof(*__first) __value = *__first; (where I've only just found typeof).
I've done some benchmarks, and I'm reasonably convinced that this is
both safe and the most efficent way of doing things. If *__first is a
reference, we just store the reference and access it twice. If
*__first is returned by value, then we only get it by value once and
use it twice. Does this seem safe / sensible?
Hi Chris, today I noticed this thread:
