[Bioperl-l] Bio::DB::GFF and feature order

In attempting to determine some statistics on the distances between  
CDS features in my Bio::DB::GFF database, I ran a query on all CDS  
features as follows...

my @CDS = $segment->features('CDS');

...only to find that the features returned are not in order.  Is  
there a way of returning the features in order or sorting them  
through some internal Bio::DB::GFF related method, aside from the  
more obvious  path of sorting through the array itself (somehow)?
