[Bioperl-l] GFF method in Bio::SeqFeatureI

There now two methods in SeqFeatureI for every gff-concerned
operation: gff_string() and gff2_string(), _from_gff_string(),
_from_gff2_string(), and two named parameters in new().

Inheriting classes all use gff_string() and friend.

I suggest we remove the old implementation of gff_string() and
rename Mark W.'s gff2_string() to the former. Likewise for the
other methods.

Alternatively, we rename gff_string() to gff1_string(), and
gff2_string() to gff_string().

I prefer the first option. Any objections?
