[Bioperl-l] Accessing karyotype data from Ensembl

I am trying to figure out the correct syntax to access the karyotype data from
the Ensembl database. I need to use the start and end base pair coordinates for
the karyotype bands in a separate program, which means I need to be able to use
that data, not just view it. 

I'm thinking that it will be like getting slices as described in the Core API
Tutorial, but with some other word than 'Slice' in:
my $slice_adaptor = $registry->get_adaptor( 'Human', 'Core', 'Slice' );

Any ideas on how to do this under the current API?
