Ah, I didn't realize range_size doesn't support references at all. In that case,
why not add those specializations, as well?

Why should an array be special? If the metafunction is defined for a particular
type, and a logical definition exists for the qualified forms of said type,
then the metafunction should work for the qualified forms, IMHO.

It works, but char const[5] is not char const (&)[5].

Thanks Steven.
