What's the issue with returning a range? How else can they be chained?

What is your opinion of this style of algorithm?

template<typename out_t, typename in_t>
inline out_t algorithm (in_t const& in) {
  out_t out (boost::size (in)); assuming output size same as input


  return out;

This assumes return value optimization, which I've verified on recent gcc.
