To be honest, I'd really love to see a ground-up redesign of the STL
that uses ranges and takes advantage of some of the other niceties that
modern C++ (especially 0x) can provide us. The loss of concepts makes
this lose its luster a bit, but perhaps a complete redesign of the STL
with concepts in mind (as opposed to trying to put concepts into the
current STL) would help to give some insight on how concepts *should* work.

I've hesitated on doing much with this, since I'm still trying to figure
out a place for multidimensional containers in all this, and they don't
map quite so easily onto the concept of ranges (especially with respect
to for loops, which are by definition a one-dimensional sequence).
