Sorry, please change this to a feature request instead of a bug report.

----------------------------------------
Bug #15523: `Range#begin` and `Range#end`
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15523#change-76232

* Author: sawa (Tsuyoshi Sawada)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 
* Backport: 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
My understanding is that `Range#begin` and `Range#end`'s features are just subsets of `Range#first` and `Range#last`, respectively. And since they are slightly confusing with the keywords `begin` and `end`, I propose to either:

* Let `Range#begin` and `Range#end` be aliases of `Range#first` and `Range#last`, respectively, or
* Let `Range#begin` and `Range#end` be obsolete after a migration path of waning against their use and recommending the use of `Range#first` and `Range#last` instead.
