What about Infix a-la FC++?

  (rngA ^difference^ rngB)

I love the syntax, but maybe this is too much operator abuse.

I'm still missing something: where is the problem in:

vector<int> vecnA;
vector<int> vecnB;

DoSomethingWithRangeThatStoresIterators( difference_range< int, int >
diffrng( vecnA, vecnB ) );

This works, as long as the range doesn't escape from DSWRTSI, or a copy is made.

[of course a make_difference_range would make the code much cleaner]
