[Bioperl-l] Refseq and Splice Variants

I am wondering if there is a way of easily identifying Refseq sequences 
that are splice variants of the same gene.  If a gene has multiple 
splice products that are supported by experimental evidence, they get 
their own Refseq identifier, but there is no explicit reference to the 
underlying gene they came from (outside of the identifier line).

What I am trying to do is group sets of Refseq sequences in FASTA 
format into sets of splice variants of the same gene.  Does anyone know 
of a way, using Bioperl, that I can accomplish this?
