I see. So, with cref_list_of I would need to give a maximum number to the template, which is compile time! There really isn't a reasonable limit on the size of the resulting list.

Is new stuff helpful to me, that I should look at becoming an early adopter? Or should I forget about it? Three separate range push_back's would not be too bad. std::vector doesn't have range-based push-back, but I'm supposing that this is supplied with the range library?

But I still need to count up the total size to reserve ahead of time, for best efficiency. What I need is a push_back that takes a list of ranges that are easy to specify, or be overloaded to some reasonable number of range arguments. Anything like that hanging around already?
