Bug#929195: ITP: golang-github-bradfitz-iter -- Range over integers [0,n). Seriously, that's it.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Drew Parsons <dparsons@debian.org>

* Package name    : golang-github-bradfitz-iter

  Description     : Range over integers [0,n). Seriously, that's it.

Package iter provides a syntactically different way to iterate over
integers. That's it.

This package was intended to be an educational joke when it was
released in in 2014. People didn't get the joke part and started
depending on it. That's fine, I guess. (This is the Internet.) But
it's kinda weird. It's one line, and not even idiomatic Go style. I
encourage you not to depend on this or write code like this, but I do
encourage you to read the code and think about the representation of
Go slices and why it doesn't allocate.

This is a required dependency for golang-github-anacrolix-dms-dev
(ITP#928372) via golang-github-anacrolix-missinggo (ITP#929146).

To be maintained under the Debian Go Team.
