And this too, in its own right. How do you deal with the issue of
limited precision in doubles? E.g. a value that is a corner case for
just being in range for one index, or possibly another if these ranges
are meant to have no 'gap' (e.g. [d1, d2), [d2, d3))? Or possibly the
value used is just in or out of a range, but the relevant epsilon could
take it either way?
