Subject RE: [collections] Would like to contribute my RangeIterator

Right, I guess an unstated motivation for my doubts were that for
non-lists you're not really guaranteed an order for iteration.  I guess
that doesn't necessarily make a bounded iterator entirely useless, but I
would tend to think that it would reduce its utility.  And if you want
to treat a non-list collection or map as if it were a list, there are
ways to do that, too.
