No, I haven't followed the discussion... but you asked
about an implementation; I'm using the one below.
def frange(start, end=None, inc=None):
"A range function, that does accept float increments..."
if end == None:
end = start + 0.0
start = 0.0
if inc == None:
inc = 1.0
L = [start]
while L[-1] + inc < end:
L.append(L[-1] + inc)
