take a look at Bio::LoationI.  maybe Bio::SeqFeature::Annotated can
inherit from this, and the interface has already set up an each_Location()
method for you to get all the locations out.  but i don't understand the
Bio::Location::CoordinatePolicy yet, it looks like it affects calls to 
start() and end().
