Are you aware that such an API would pose interesting
concurrency issues?

  If you do not lock the storage during the iteration,
  it is not unlikely the the iterated over set is
  modified during the interation. This poses interesting
  semantic questions (what precisely is the returned list?).

  On the other hand, you cannot lock the storage
  as the iteration is likely to be a very long running operation.
