New PEP (281): Loop Counter Iteration with range and xrange

I've submitted a draft PEP describing the idea of letting range and
xrange accept sequences (or possibly, for xrange, any iterable) and
return/yield one index per element. It's closely related to PEP 212,
but instead of proposing new functions/syntax, it proposes extending
the capabilities of existing functions.

The PEP is available at:

  http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0281.html

Comments are (of course) welcome.
