Discussion:

24.8.2.2 [valarray.cons] says:

valarray(initializer_list<T> il);

Effects: Same as valarray(il.begin(), il.end()).

But there is no valarray constructor taking two const T*.

Moved to Tentatively Ready after 6 positive votes on c++std-lib.

Proposed resolution:

Change 24.8.2.2 [valarray.cons]:

valarray(initializer_list<T> il);

Effects: Same as valarray(il.begin(), il.endsize()).
