Thanks! I know Thorsten feels similarly and would like to see it become
an official part of Boost.Range.

Oh, yeah. The numeric algorithms. I forgot about those. Thanks for

I choose to take this as a compliment. :-)
Between dealing with FOREACH test failures and getting xpressive ready
for review, I haven't had much time for the range algorithms and
adaptors. After the dust has settled a bit, I hope to get back to
thinking abouut Range (unless you or Thorsten beats me to it).
Thanks for the suggestions and the code. They are most welcome.
