Functionally that seems reasonable. IMO it wouldn't be a problem to call the Double variant `stride(through:by:)` to match the integer form. Just for fun, you could simplify the condition here:

        if stride > 0.0 ? current >= end : current <= end {

by using 'if signbit(current - end) == signbit(stride)' instead.
