Agreed, I'm going to take care of this, surveying the existing practice 
of 3 or 4 implementations I have access too.

Well, as I mentioned in the PR, decoupling the reverse_iterator case 
from the "normal" iterator case seems difficult for the special 
std::deque::iterator and const_iterator case (it isn't for 
__normal_iterator, used by the other standard containers). Again, I will 
do my best in the next weeks.
