Do we have examples of real world APIs that actually need this functionality? Offhand, I don't recall having worked with any command-line tool that would accept "at least two but no more than four filenames" for example.

Given that this isn't trivial to implement, we should take a moment to evaluate whether users actually need it.  We had eight years since the original proposal without anyone chiming in to say, "yes, I need this".
