To store the data in a more compact form, it's necessary to understand the data so you can look for more compact representations of the information it represents. And for now, that isn't clear (to me).
I set up a small set of input ranges--of both the normal--$start <= $end type; and the inverted $end < $start type; and then tried to make sense of the numbers returned by num_ranges_containing(). And I cannot.
I input these ranges:
And then asked for the counts containing the ranges: [0,3], [1,4], ...., [7,10], and as the returns didn't add up, I did a simple plot:
Looking at just a couple:
How am I misinterpreting the data?

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
