Thanks Eli,

Does this come close?  Admittedly, it's for a single-range 
(single-thumb?) slider:

There is one wrinkle in the double-thumb slider and that is movement of 
one of the thumbs is constrained to not go beyond the other thumb.  All 
movement of a particular thumb would be restricted to the range defined 
by the other thumb (did that make sense?).
