With C++ ranges today you can do :

    auto const ints = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6};
    auto d = ints | views::transform([](int x) { return x*2; });

You're right, I did read very quickly on this but it's the standard OR operator being used differently:

Well, I think that is a "good thing" if the language allows you to reuse the syntax (operator overload) through library implementations without changing the compiler.

So there would seem be be a need here since this is not yet implemented if I am right.

Not yet, but being flexible to convert from ranges to *ANY* kind of container may be challenging...

We are also trying to avoid macros... they are not module-friendly, not bounded to the type system, among many other issues:
