But you never would want to.  Don't get me wrong, the primitives here  
could work for a streaming API (I haven't implemented it that way, but it  
could be made to work).  But the idea that it must *also* be a std.range  
input range makes zero sense.

To me, this is as obvious as not supporting linklist[index];  Sure, it can  
be done, but who would ever use it?
