algorithms.hpp: range(pair) for range iteration

C++11 doesn't allow: for (auto v : multimap.equal_range(key)) { ... }
because equal_range gives back a pair, which isn't iterable.  Added a
wrapper class and eris::range() function that wraps this pair into an
iterable class, so that I can at least do:

    for (auto v : eris::range(multimap.equal_range(key))) { ... }

This appears to be something that was supported in early C++11 drafts,
but removed
without the suggested solution of having equal_range returning something
iterable actually being implemented.
