Thanks. Got some questions though:
What if input type is like range<char*> (and you'd like output type to
be std::string)?
I think output type and input type shouldn't be required to be equal.

Should hex output be upper case or lower case? c++0x suggests lower case. :p

Shouldn't hex_decode_error derive from std::runtime_error?

Wouldn't it be simpler to only provide the range-based variant and
require C strings and iterator pairs to be wrapped in a range?
