Most of the proposal looks fine to me. A welcome feature. Eager to see
anyone's ideas for further extension to the range DSL—perhaps this will
spark people's imaginations
My only comment is concern over leaving out ..< It's not the prettiest
operator, true, but in the name of consistency and the "principle of least
surprise" I think it's the right one to use. I'm trying to imagine
explaining this to someone learning Swift—"... means up to and including
(except when it doesn't.)" Sounds like a mini-nightmare to me.
