I looked at that, and the interval "hull" is a union. But the library in general is not a good fit.

Given a std::pair of numbers (not iterators) or other values that have suitable comparison functions and the pair is the low,high of a range, is there already a library somewhere that does utilities such as range union, intersection, intersect testing, etc.?
Have you considered using Boost.Interval This wouldn't provide the solution for operating upon std::pair directly IIRC but seems to be a good solution from the brief description of the problem.
