    + * A convenience class for implementing iterators that select, but do not modify, entries
read from a source iterator. Default implementations exist for all
    + * methods, but {@link #deepCopy} will throw an <code>UnsupportedOperationException</code>.
    + *
    + * This iterator has some checks in place to enforce the iterator contract. Specifically,
it verifies that it has a source iterator and that {@link #seek} has
    + * been called before any data is read. If either of these conditions does not hold true,
an <code>IllegalStateException</code> will be thrown. In particular,
    + * this means that <code>getSource().seek</code> and <code></code>
no longer perform identical actions. Implementors should take note of this and if
    + * <code>seek</code> is overridden, ensure that <code></code>
is called before data is read.

    Ok, so essentially we're creating custom variants of things that are generally "less safe"
because we're controlling what the implementations are. I can buy that -- would suggest a
comment to that extent as well.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
