[Bioc-devel] cbind method / SummarizedExperiment

Hi all,

I implemented a subclass of SummarizedExperiment from the GenomicRanges 
package. When I call cbind() on two objects of my subclass, I get an 
object of class SummarizedExperiment and not of my own class. So I have 
to re-implement cbind() in order to avoid this unwanted class coercing. 
This is not the case for, e.g., combine() for class eSet. I am wondering 
whether it would make sense to change the implementation of cbind() (and 
also rbind() etc.) for SummarizedExperiment in order to make class 
inheritance more convenient?
