My opinion: it contains things that overlap with RangeEx or lambdas, and
combining the right tools is simple enough that it outweighs the bloat
of defining many new names and algorithms.
iota, for example, is nothing more than transform with a simplistic
phoenix expression (ref(v)++).
transform_if should either be provided by RangeEx directly or can simply
be transform on a filtered range.
