    std::string::iterator it = In2.end();

For something like a std::vector, the "end()" iterator indeed would be
non-dereferenceable. But for a std::string, the "end()" iterator points to the
null terminator, which is a valid character. There is at least one libc++ test
that relies on being able to dereference the "end()" iterator of a std::string:


Possible resolutions include:
- Make the one-character fix to basic_string::__dereferenceable (change < to
- Rewrite `fs::u8path` so that it doesn't try to read the null terminator.
(This is physically impossible, I think?)
- Decide that the current "path.factory.pass.cpp" has UB and eliminate it from
the test suite (perhaps with accompanying LWG issue about this trap for the
