LGTM with a comment I'd like to see addressed, but I don't think I need to see this again. IIUC, @vitaut 's concern about character-by-character output has been resolved since this was rebased. We are still buffering too much to @vitaut 's liking, but @Mordante 's telling me that he'll investigate that in the future, before we ship this.

Also, this should be rebased onto the `__get_container()` patch.

Yeah, I think it would be better to have a less intrusive mechanism. We can specialize it for various containers in this header instead of having to touch `vector` & friends directly.
