Those are good changes. There's no reason to use the make_iter
helper in these tests since we're only using the test iterators
and they can all be constructed the same way. The helpers are
there to let us use both the test iterators as well as other
kinds (such as pointers, etc.)

That said, if you suspect an MSVC bug it would be nice to put
together a small test case for the record and report it to
