Not really, the python itertools.tee affords a sort of 'save' on 
*inputRanges* (all python iterators roughly model inputRanges, 
and nothing more) hence letting you simulate forwardRange: you 
just have to promise not to touch the underlying range directly 
after a call to itertools.tee and instead work with the resulting 
split ranges provided.
I am a newcomer to D and I am looking for equivalent 
functionality in phobos (so far I have not found). Is there a way 
to convert inputRanges into forwardRanges, at the cost of extra 
PS: thanks for your range calendar tutorial!
