Subject: [boost] Range notation grammar

This ship has undoubtedly sailed, but I'd like to register my
displeasure with names like "uniqued," "taken," and "strided" et. al.
The effect (subjectively of course) is to take a beautiful, minimal
abstract notation that reflects a common practice (seriously, it's
"grep," which is a verb, not "grepped") and mess it up with
unconventional and awkward linguistic insurance against

this-has-been-a-test-of-the-emergency-nattering-system-ly y'rs,
