Thanks, Neil, great news.

Just in case - why stride works for Random Access Sequences only?
Why can't I use it for Input sequence like istream_range (e.g. "process every
10th word")?
I hope it's already in your Todo list.

Also, I don't see any easy way to skip x first elements. "slice" doesn't help as
I need to know size that I might not know in advance, for example, in this setup:
v | filtered(by) | sliced(5,???)

And similar question about skipping n elements at the end of the sequence.
Basically, it would be great to have Python-style slice, as it's concise and
easy to use, like here:
>>> a=[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
>>> a[3:-3]
[4, 5, 6, 7]
