In Sean Parent's CppCon keynote last week, he went through the process of
implementing an algorithm he called "sort_subrange", which takes four
iterators describing two ranges, one a subset of the other, and sorts the
subrange - as if you had sorted the entire range. (See, starting at about 31:30).

I have implemented this in Boost.Algorithm (crediting Sean) - called

However, while I was doing this, I thought of a different algorithm; one
that gathered all the elements into the subrange as if the entire range was
sorted, but didn't actually do the sorting.

I've implemented that one, too - but I'm having a bit of trouble coming up
with a name.

I've used "partition_subrange", but that not that clear.
Sean has suggested "elements_in_subrange" and "elements_within_subrange".

Here's the declaration:

  template<typename Iterator, typename Pred>
  void partition_subrange (
  Iterator first, Iterator last,
  Iterator sub_first, Iterator sub_last,
  Pred p)

/// \brief Gather the elements of the subrange [sub_first, sub_last) that
/// inside the range [first, last) as if you had sorted the entire

Any suggestions?
