#include <iostream>
#include <odb/database.hxx>

/* This class should be in a separate .hpp file and contain some
 * #pragmas. The generated odb.hxx file should be included. However,
 * the current content is sufficient to demonstrate the use of const.
class FourPoint
  double latitude;

typedef odb::result<FourPoint> result;

inline std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream& out, const result& val)
  for (result::const_iterator i (val.begin ()); i != val.end (); ++i)
    out << *i << std::endl;
  return out;

This code results in the following errors:

noconstiter.cpp: In function ‘std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream&,
const result&)’:

Removing all consts in this operator<< results in working code.
