What's the point? The interface you *ought* to be using is
`ranges::rbegin`. It will work with a much wider variety of types.

If you have an interface that is better in every regard compared to
the original, why would you continue using the original? And
therefore, why should we continue to propagate it? Especially when it
adds more dependencies to a piece of code than is necessary.
