Ah I see that your question was implied by the < ??? >. There were many
questions and it was not obvious that this wasn't just a place holder. I do
see your point now. I've been using irange using type deduction, but this
would definitely be better if the return type were public. I was trying to
avoid adding iterator public types to the range library.

Yes, this looks like the best solution. I shall make this change as soon as
I possibly can get to a computer.

Thanks for your persistence. This will definitely improve the library.
