I'm not sure what "the problem of the range library" is, but I think
you may be right. IIUC you're just worried about how authors of range
classes can supply the range-related functions such as "begin," and
how users of generic ranges will invoke those functions.
If so, the stuff I was talking about there is mostly unrelated. It
deals with how to select algorithm implementations. I _do_ plan to
introduce a new kind of range concept, but that's a separate issue.
