[Bioperl-l] Bio::Location::Fuzzy CoordinatePolicy questions

Hilmar (or whomever can answer this),

I was looking at a few bug fixes (bug 992 in particular) and noticed that,
although LocationI-implementing objects are supposed to use a
CoordinatePolicy for determining start/end coordinates for fuzzy locations,
Bio::Location::Fuzzy::to_FTstring() does not (it uses max/min_start() and
max/min_end() instead).  To me, it seems that this should be building the
location string using the coordinate_policy->start()/end() methods instead
(as suggested in the bug report).

The default CoordinatePolicy for Location::Fuzzy is Bio::Location::
WidestCoordPolicy.

Would there be any objection to changing this?
