I'm not sure I'm tackling this problem from the right angle, but here's my situation:

On a page that displays a single DataObject, I want to be able to link to the next / previous DataObject in a DataObjectSet.

I know one can peek the previous / next item in a DataObjectSet_Iterator, but is there a way to set the Iterator's current position to a specific item?

$current_photo = $this->getPhoto(); // DataObject of the current photo
$photos = $this->Photos(); // DataObjectSet
$iterator = $photos->getIterator(); // DataObjectSet_Iterator

$iterator->peekNext(); // DataObject
$iterator->peekPrev(); // DataObject

Thanks much for your help
