Will give the bounty when I can...

@NateEldrege: I conjecture the sequence 1,3,4,6,7... is the ideal upper bound for what the question I linked to wants.

@NateEldredge: Also, I am not looking for an answer necessarily, just guidance on what to do to confirm or deny this conjecture, and if it is false, advice as what to look into to come up with a correct solution, as I believe I can find a better upper bound than the solution given.

@NateEldredge: All my stuff is from experimentation as I can't think of anyway to prove this with my knowledge of discrete math. Honestly, the reason why I choose that particular $a(n)$ is relatively arbitrary, simply because it was the simplest closed form that matched up with my experimentation.

Thanks, I am still a little confused as to why choosing $\epsilon = \frac{\inf{f} + \inf{g} - \inf{(f+g)}}{2}$ leads to a contradiction though.
