Ranges is very usefull when you would like to make a SELECT with a list of values.

instead of

select ... into table ... from ... for all entries in ... where ...

you remove the "for all entries in".

It's just a problem of performance. Because for all entries make a lot of database access.

The danger with the ranges is the size, greater than 3000 entries, you will have a dump.
