I've tried this way in the lib.set.union test but had no luck: I faced
with the problem of the iterator type retrieving by the given constant
(It is possible to hardcode all 64 possible iterators permutations and
avoid the problem, but will this make sense?). So, I am not sure that I
cought your idea above (did you mean something like traits class?). 
Could you explain your approach or provide some example, please?

Anyway I'll continue my attempts to reduce the test compilation time.
