Hi Daniel,

What I would do depends on how complicated your features are.  If
there are not parent child relationships, it would probably be easiest
to just print the GFF yourself rather than going through a module.
The beauty of GFF3 is that it is pretty easy to write (at least for
the simple stuff).  If it is more complicated, you could look at using
one of the BioPerl modules.
