std.algorithm.bringToFront is efficient to rotate arrays in-place, but often in
range-based coding (in UFCS chains) I'd like a lazy range that yields the
rotated items and doesn't modify the order of the items of the original data.
So in Phobos I'd like a lazy range with a semantics similar to this:

import std.stdio, std.range;

auto rotate(R)(R r, in int n) pure nothrow
if (isRandomAccessRange!R) {
    immutable int len = r.walkLength;
    return r.cycle.drop(n >= 0 ? n : len + n).take(len);

void main() {
    foreach (shift; -5 .. 5)
        [10, 20, 30, 40, 50].rotate(shift).writeln;

To work like this the input array should be a random access one. (You can write
a rotate() for a bidirectional array, but I think there is less need for it).
