Range() is a Pain

It is now painfully obvious that Range(), which is essentially a collection of specific GreaterThan() and LessThan() statements, is a real pain to represent in Regular Expressions.  Because of this, I would like to know more about how Regex Expression Trees are manifest, transformed and generated.  Any insight on this would be great.

The trail on how to implement this feature had gone cold, however; I spoke with someone recently who recommended using a forward look ahead.  Although potentially computatively intensive, the idea was more than feasible and got me re-engaged in the project.  Not only that, but I've found a real-world application for SemantEx which should bring value to the project as well as to the community.  I'll should have something ready by late April when the project hits my desk.
