Yes.  Sorry.  I'm still learning Darcs.

Agreed.  I'll incorporate your suggestions into the next patch.

I see your point about not bringing it into base, but on the other hand its a bit small to float off as as separate package.  Having many tiny packages can make finding the right functionality just as hard as a few bloated ones.  I've had a look at #710, and it looks like ranged sets would belong in the containers section.
