I think that for DSP the best way to model a signal is a dense
sequence, that is not based in the RangeRun concepts. I think how to
implement convolution or FIR block processing based on DFT and I do
not find an easy way, but I have not spend enough time on it.

No, I have not find the time yet. That is why I just said I am not
convinced, no more than that. And I state again that a RangeRun based
library is a good addition to Boost and can cohabit in Boost with
others DSP libraries.

Best regards
