> This is a contribution of a span class as discussed on the mailing list.
> The classes are int and long based and can:
>  # determine if points are within the span.
>  # determine if one span contains another span
>  # determine if two spans overlap
>  # do not have to have 0 (zero) as the index origin.
>  # determine the length of the span
>  # determine the last position in the span.
>  # determine the first position in the span.
> Changes to Number Utils required to detect underflow and overflow 
> calculations.
