Very persuasive, but it's careful to touch only the examples that look
nice. Note, for example, that every range was a whole container.
The three-iterators part was somewhat handwaved-over as well. Take
this bit of current code, for example:
auto i = find(c.begin(), c.end(), some_pred());
rotate(c.begin(), i, c.end());
How do you do that nicely with ranges, when he has find returning a
range? (Since right now, it implicitly actually returns 2 ranges.)
And how does insertion work? Do we still need to keep the iterators
around for insertion position?
I'd love to see the finicky bits worked out, though, since I do like the idea.
