[Bioperl-l] GenBank subseq retrieval

I saw in Bugzilla that there was an attempt to add seq_start and seq_end
(among other features) to Bio::DB::Genbank to allow subsequence retrieval
through the efetch interface at NCBI:

I didn't see the proposed updates in bioperl-live CVS.  Is this implemented
yet or is there an alternative way to do this w/o downloading the entire
sequence?  I am parsing rnamotif hits from GenBank files to determine the
genomic context of the region where the hit occurred.
