Naah. If and when these things go into std, they should be in a
sub-namespace, std::range, since otherwise some of your names will
probably conflict with an updated standard iterator facility. Also,
Boost never contain an interface we know to be suboptimal based on
speculation about how a standard version of it might look someday.
