Does this come close? Admittedly, it's for a single-range
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?).
