The other thing I wasn't clear on your rules for combining two or more windows for the same firm. The code example I gave just uses the overall range of the windows, but that would include any gaps between windows. Thus if a < b < c < d and there are windows [a,b] and [c,d] then the combined window [a, d] includes a gap [b, c].
