I have a user question regarding the proposed range types that replace the old range/interval.

The old hierachy allowed me to turn ranges to SQL expressions through the following mapping (see https://github.com/groue/GRDB.swift/blob/v0.57.0/GRDB/FetchRequest/SQLOperator.swift#L335-L365)

	1. Range<BidirectionalIndexType>
	expr BETWEEN self.startIndex AND self.endIndex.predecessor()

	2. ClosedInterval
	expr BETWEEN self.start AND self.end

	3. HalfOpenInterval
	expr >= start AND x < end

This would let me generate SQL for 0..<18 and "A"..<"B", as below:

	// SELECT * FROM "persons" WHERE ("age" BETWEEN 0 AND 17)

	// SELECT * FROM "persons" WHERE ("age" BETWEEN 0 AND 17)

	// SELECT * FROM "persons" WHERE ("name" BETWEEN 'A' AND 'z')

	// SELECT * FROM "persons" WHERE (("name" >= 'A') AND ("name" < 'z'))

Will it still be possible with the new protocol and types? Especially, how to I generate "BETWEEN 0 AND 17" from 0..<18 without a supporting collection that gives me the predecessor of 18?

> The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review through constructive criticism and, eventually, determine the direction of Swift. When writing your review, here are some questions you might want to answer in your review:
> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?
> 	* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
> 	* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
> 	* If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
> 	* How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
