Re: [std-proposals] Add more methods to std::initializer_list instead of overloading

I do not believe that adding ranges eliminates the need to care about old
things. It's also impossible that no one will try il.cbegin() and get a
compile error.

After adding methods to std::initializer_list, there is no need to overload
free function templates.
