There were other choices that were not as popular as the ones above, 
please don't be angry I didn't mention them all.

This vote was rather informal so I allowed myself to do a tally without 
having specified a deadline etc. So I'm not sure how much this all 
counts... should we just settle for front and back?

I'd be fine with front/back. Not quite as nice as first/last, but it's better than head/toe.

Pick one and stick with it. That is all I would suggest. If someone takes major offense to it, they could alias it to their preference, right? I've been dabbling with Objective-C while waiting for the DMD/GDC/LDC thunking to end, so my D is getting slightly rusty.

Not really, because these names will be used as members of hundreds of different user-created range structs. There's no way to make a generic alias for a member of even one struct let alone hundreds of different ones. --bb

Now if we are about to settle for front and back, how about following STL all the way through and using popFront and popBack? That would make for a very clean nomenclature. Andrei
