The difference will be that a new algorithm is generally a much smaller piece of code than a new library, so hopefully we can lower the barrier to getting small pieces of code into Boost.

The range library has some extra magic to
control the return type of find etc. Maybe
it should be used here too?

The range overload of one_of_if should
take a const R& argument.
