Perhaps Aleksey is right. Your iterator_range is a concept different
from mine. For instance, allowing ++pre, could beg for post++, and then
(for bidirectional ranges) for --, and so on. As well for -- and such.
Also, offering operator* would beg for operator->

However, the way I see it, if rangelib makes it into boost, at a later
time, we might be able to merge these two libs.
