I appreciate your efforts - having said that, please don't implement it on
my behalf.
I have to find a workable solution sooner than that. iterator_range
provided me and my users with some niceties. I now have to go and
re-evaluate my design.
However, I am confident we will look at and use your library once it's in

Sometimes it seemed that people were not willing to see that different use
cases exist - and posting here sometimes feels like stirring a hornets'

Thinking about any positives to take away, I see the following: a) I've
learnt a few things b) there are people here who are still interested in
helping and collaboration.
The negatives: Too much arguing about fringe issues, which completely
obscures the relevant discussion
