I'd like to see this patch make it into a release too, despite Jeff's
misgivings. While I can
appreciate Jeff's comments about consistency of Boost interfaces in
different libraries, the
Boost Range adaptors are absolutely all about brevity and clarity of
exposition, and as
such seem especially to benefit from this syntactic sugar.

Is this patch's appearance in a release 'in progress'? Anyone?
