It's not at all clear to me what we can possibly do in the general case of
discontiguous containers. Certainly, we don't want Segmentation faults or bus
errors, but that is a largely unrelated issue (I suggest filing a separate PR),
which, I bet, in general has to do mostly with proper arithmetic in each
individual container. As a matter of fact, the problem with deque is an
arithmetic overflow in _M_new_elements_at_front.
