I see the range concept as being of tremendous value once we start using
iterator adapters more frequently. eg. filter_adapter is more clearly
expressed as a range filter than a single iterator. If Dave / Jeremy /
Thomas / Thorsten are happy I would like to propose the range concepts
and overloads for the next ISO meeting (overenthusiastic new boy
syndrome!) but given the TR deadlines don't see how much progress I can
make without tacking it onto the back of an existing proposal (such as
iterator adaptors)

Of course as a boost library there is no such deadline, and it is more a
matter of community interest.

I am quite keen to do the work on both counts <g> but don't want to jump
over people already doing this work. If those committee members reading
the group want to comment, I am quite happy to work on a paper for Kona
if thought worthwhile.
