Personally, I'm for the iteration spec in a lot of ways.
Firstly, a .get()/.pick() that always returns the same element feels horrible. Is there anyone here who _likes_ it?
I do. Since the caller is asking for an arbitrary element, returning the same element is legitimate. It's funny how people seem to have a problem with the word "arbitrary" :)
And I'm -1 on any implicit iteration attaching some state to the object. If you want to iterate, there's already an obvious way to it.
