Sorry for warming up an old thread, but since there was talk about the QtC 
coding style recommending this...

It's safe for lvalues. What't not safe are rvalues, but the std:.cref() 
overload from rvalues (const) is supposed to be deleted, according o en-
cppreference.com, so it shouldn't even compile. Doesn't help much if the 
compiler doesn't know = delete, though.

This might work, based on the cref() overload pattern:

      template <typename T>
      class QContainerWrapper {
          T container;
          friend decltype(auto) begin(const QContainerWrapper &w)
          { return w.container.begin(); }
          friend decltype(auto) end(const QContainerWrapper &w)
          { return w.container.end(); }
      // assume the following are friends of QContainerWrapper<T/T&>, resp.:
      template <typename T>
      QContainerWrapper<T&> qAsConst(const T &t) // lvalue
      { return {t}; } // stores reference
      template <typename T>
      QContainerWrapper<T> qAsConst(const T &&t)
      { return {std::move(t)}; } // stores a copy
