[Bioperl-l] Bio::Seq, search for specific features

I am working a lot with feature-rich Bio::Seq objects these days and
thought that it would be really nice if I could do something like:

my @features = $bio_seq_obj->get_SeqFeatures(-by_id => 'my_gene');

instead of having to grep for the feature every time. 
There could then be 'by_tag' and 'by_region' options as well. 

According to the Bio::Seq docs, something like this seems to be planned
at some stage. I would be willing to contribute to this feature if I can
and if this isn't already being implemented by somebody else. 
Does anybody know the state of this feature?
