[Bioperl-l] split location problems

The whole point of split locations is to represent genes with introns
so that is not the "rare" case.
I'm confused where the problem is. The locations that I get out with
to_FTstring on the location object are exactly the same as those input.
I have processed the genbank fungal genomes into GFF3 and have had no
problems so I'm confused where you are breaking down. If I write
them out as embl I also get the correct thing. This is using the CVS
version of bioperl from the HEAD.
I've added code to test this to bug 2101 including a C.glabrata
chromsome downloaded from genbank. Perhaps the problem is on the
EMBL parsing side, I didn't test that.
On the technical side, I still am not sure I fully know where the
strand information should be stored - the top level container or the
sub-features. I'll try and stay up on the discussion if anything has
been decided that I should know about.
