this still works:

>>> indices = np.array([-5,-4,-3,1,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,255,256,257,258,10001,10002,10003,10004])
>>> idx = (np.diff(indices) != 1).nonzero()[0]
>>> idxf = np.hstack((-1,idx,len(indices)-1))
>>> vmin = indices[idxf[:-1]+1]
>>> vmax = indices[idxf[1:]]
>>> zip(vmin,vmax)
[(-5, -3), (1, 1), (1, 9), (255, 258), (10001, 10004)]
