Something I have wondered since listening to the lecture (online) from
BoostCon, is how the interaction between ranges and containers is designed.
For instance, how does std::container<T>::insert and erase look?
How would the following example from the SGI STL doc be written in, say, D's
standard library (I did search the D documentation, but couldn't find the

    std::vector<int> v;
    v.erase(v.begin(), std::find(v.begin(), v.end(), X));

Sorry if this is already covered, I would very much be interested in reading
further on this topic.
