[Bioc-devel] RFC: IntervalTrees for GRanges objects

I'm writing an application where lots findOverlap calls are made on
static GRanges objects. For IRanges we can create persistent
IntervalTree objects that would serve the multiple overlap query
use-case. There is no equivalent for GenomicRanges objects, so I'm
proposing an implementation for this.
There's a first cut implementation there you can test by installing
this skeleton package. E.g,
> install_github("GenomicIntervalTree", username="hcorrada", subdir="pkg")
Let me know what you think.
