I also touched up the docs for location_from_column.

There's still an inconsistency, the docs say it'll return undef for i
columns before the first residue, but in reality it returns an
IN-BETWEEN.

Is it better to leave it as is or change the code to match the docs?
Should it behave consistently for things past the end of the sequence
if we fix the before?
