// ConsecutiveRangeVisitor is a visitor to read equal consecutive items
// ("ranges") between two iterators. The base value of InputIterator must
// implement the == operator.
// Example: "AAAAABZZZZOO" consists of ranges ["AAAAA", "B", "ZZZZ", "OO"]. The
// visitor provides accessors to iterate through the ranges, and to access each
// range's value and repeat, i.e., [('A', 5), ('B', 1), ('Z', 4), ('O', 2)].
