According to my observation, it seems, that current workaround code,
located in range/detail/common.h is not working properly. This code is supposed
to qualify the kind of range being used. The qualification seems to be failing.
I have developed different scheme, and it is located in the collection_traits*
files. Unfortunately, this files are no longer compatible. collection_traits* was
designed for the older version of range library.
So, the code has to be ported to make it usable. To make thing easier, it should
be enough if the array recognition code is ported, since the rest of the stuff
is generaly the same.
However, it is still possible, that the current code is generaly okey, just it needs
some final touch. Maybe this is the best way you can go. If you'll be able to
localize the problematic spot, we can either fix it, or rework it.
