We *may* get this, if everything works out.

Eric Niebler has a fairly complete concept of what a high level Ranges
i/o ought to look like.

Dalton Woodard is working on a generic mechanism for Ranges i/o to
discover any low level scatter-gather i/o implementation, such that
Ranges can "just work" with whatever you feed it.

Elias Kosunen is working on an iostreams << replacement matching the >>
replacement which is fmt, just standardised into C++ 20.

Zach Laine and others are working on Unicode string support.

I'm working on a generic low level i/o library API, and have just
internally distributed the first draft of an enhanced C++ memory and
object model which has first class support for exchanging
representations of objects between multiple C++ programs. I'll be
releasing draft 2 to SG12 next week, I'll be speaking on the topic at
ACCU in April followed by attending WG14 in May, all building towards
generating a head of steam for progress within WG21 over

We'll see how things go.
