Bio::Range::Set sounds like great idea.

Sorry to put you in a tight spot with the request for keeping external 
dependencies to the minimum. I should have stressed that follow it only if it 
can be done easily. If you look at the actual dependencies of BioPerl at the 
moment, you'll realize not many have to patience to follow that guideline.

The main thing is the get working code in. If you then have the energy to code 
a module that gets rid of the dependency, that's an added bonus.

Thanks for your effort,
