There is some fairly horrible stuff, like std::copy:
You can pass a std::vector<T>::iterator (say, the result of begin()) as
the output iterator, but it's your job to ensure that there's enough
space. Just like strcpy, and we all know how well that worked in practice.
Well, the STL has a solution for that, but the header is, unfortunately,
std::copy(src.begin(), src.end(), std::back_inserter(dest));
That said, I do wish there were a "InsertIterator" concept or the like
which std::copy would require (and probably move the existing std::copy
to std::unsafe_copy if it's deemed required still).
