This package was intended to be an educational joke when it was

it's kinda weird. It's one line, and not even idiomatic Go style. I
encourage you not to depend on this or write code like this, but I do
encourage you to read the code and think about the representation of
Go slices and why it doesn't allocate.
Please merge this code into the using one.
It's used quite extensively by the anacrolix Go packages (missinggo,
tagflag), it would be messy to replace every single instance.
Unless we can get them to put it in missinggo/iter/n.go
