> Can you provide a list of changesets that you intend to merge?
I feel that these changesets really must be merged:
61345 - corrected the very broken istream_range and added the missing test
61378 - add the missing include for the strided adaptor

I actually would prefer to also include

The above three changesets combine to fix the inconsistency of the return
types in the new range algorithms.

The changesets are much larger than the final delta since I made some
combined changes to the trunk that I tested as a set and then removed many
of those changes. I appreciate that this makes reviewing the changeset
difficult and for this I apologize. I also prefer to merge the total
combination of the changesets since it is this combination that has been
tested the last few days by the regression tests.

I am very confident in the result of all of the changesets and would like to
emphasise that the changes are to files that are not used as a dependency in
the rest of Boost code as of version 1.43.

I also appreciate that code churn at this stage is not at all desirable and
that had I been a bit quicker I would have been merged earlier. Whatever
your decision, I will happily accomodate.
