Subject Silly Question

Okay, it is late... so my brain cells may not be working correctly.

But, in Spans:
>   /**
>    * Returns the length of this span.

>    */
>   public int length() {

This means one of the endpoints in the span don't attribute to the
length of the span.  Is this correct?  Does this mean a span with a
start and end say at 1,1 has no length?  Or is it suppose to be 1?

I have similar problems when counting the number of locations to fill
for a memory block when doing (end - start) type arithmetic.  What
happens is the length ends up being one short.
