I am afraid, I still do not understand where you need the list of Ranges. 
In the original post you said, you want to parse a list of ranges like the 
one for pages to print in a printer dialog. Is it to select files from the 
100 ones or is it to select images from the 300,000 ones? In the first 
case I would use IntMap, in the latter case I would use Interval data
