The equal member function of istreambuf_iterator is declared const, but takes its argument by non-const reference.
This is not compatible with the operator== free function overload, which is defined in terms of calling equal yet takes both arguments by reference to const.
[ The proposed wording is consistent with 110 with status TC1. ]

Set to Tentatively Ready after 5 positive votes on c++std-lib.
Ammend in both:
bool equal(istreambuf_iterator& b) const;
