In Python sometimes I have code like this that I'd like to translate to D, it
contains a pattern that was forbidden in D:

if (... and 1 < foo(2) < 10 and ...): ...


If the call to foo() is not pure or you don't want the risk of calling it two
times, in D you have to split that if() in two and use an extra variable:


if (...) {
    const temp = foo(2);
    if (temp > 1 && temp < 10 && ...) { ...
    }
}


To avoid some of such problems I suggest to add the support for the "in"
operator to iota():

if (... && foo(2) in iota(1, 11) && ...) { ...
}


In another ehnancement request I've suggested to support the "[]" syntax in
iota():

if (... && foo(2) in iota!"[]"(1, 10) && ...) { ...
}


This usage of iota is useful only for numerical intervals, so it doesn't cover
all usages of the Python x<y<z syntax, but I think it covers most of my
translations from Python.
