The affy das/2 development server at has been
updated to better support DAS/2 spec version 300.

Gregg says:
> Changed genometry DAS/2 server so that it responds to feature queries that use
> DAS/2 v.300 feature filters.  Currently implements a subset of
> the v.300 feature query spec:
>     requires one and only one segment filter
>     requires one and only one type filter
>     accepts zero or one inside filter
> Also attempts to support DAS/2 v.200 feature filters, but success is not
> guaranteed.
