[Bioperl-l] SeqFeature::Generic

1) There was a bug in frame() disallowing a value of 0 and allowing instead 3,
in contract to the doc that says: 0,1,2. I don't know whom this affected,
frame 0 shouldn't be so rare. Anyway, it's fixed now. (I.e., a value of 3 is
2) For several extensions of SeqFeature::Generic I found it useful to have the
possibility for adding more description/annotation. I therefore added a method
annotation() to SeqFeature::Generic, which returns (and sets) a
Bio::Annotation object. Note that this slot is not allocated by default but
only when you actually request it, so it doesn't hurt memory-wise.

Any objections?
