[Bioperl-l] Bio::Map changes

Some initial changes have been made to some modules in Bio::Map to allow
Positions to have a range (Bio::Map::PositionI implements Bio::RangeI).
Further changes are needed in some remaining Bio::Map modules for this
addition to be complete (a number of Bio::Map related tests in the test
suite currently fail), notably Bio::Map::Cyto* since they had
implemented their own Range-related features.
I propose bringing all Bio::Map into line so it behaves with and makes
good use of the RangeI nature of Position. Beyond this initial change I
want to add relative positioning and more, but I'll describe that in a
future post to this thread.
Can anyone see any issues with ranged positions (it's done in a backward
compatible way)? Do any developers want to maintain control of a
Bio::Map module or shall I just dive in?
