[Bioc-devel] Noticed some XDouble* functionality missing in IRanges

I tried to slice a "normal" numeric/double vector and was a bit
surprised to get an error.

I see some support for doing this baked in, eg. the
src/XDoubleViews_utils.c :: XDouble_slice function, but it's not
exposed to the useR yet.

Would anybody mind if I start building up support for XDouble's to be
more inline with the support available in XIntegers? I'm just planning
to add XDoubleView-class.R and XDoubleViews-utils.R files that
essentially mimic their XIntegerView sister files.

Out of curiosity, was there a reason this wasn't done other than no
one had to scratch this itch yet? Just want to make sure I'm not
missing something obvious?
