Okay, thanks for the info. (One reason I ask is because qtExtensions¹
actually replaces 'foreach' with either a real range-based for, or - for
pre-C++11 compilers - a clever construct that is very nearly equivalent²³.)

(¹ https://github.com/kitware/qtextensions, although the public version
doesn't have the relevant changes yet.)

(² See
qtExtensions QTE_FOREACH omits the BOOST_FOREACH flavor but is otherwise
identical. We do require that the compiler supports at least partial
C++11, including auto.)

(³ I believe the only significant difference from how range-based for is
specified is that our version currently requires begin and end to be
methods on the container. That's mostly laziness; if it ever becomes an
issue, we could try to improve this.)
