[Bioc-devel] as.character method for GenomicRanges?

Would people be interested in having this:

setMethod("as.character", "GenomicRanges",
          function(x) {
              paste0(seqnames(x), ":", start(x), "-", end(x))


I find myself doing that a lot to make unique names or for output that
goes to collaborators.  I suppose we might want to tack on the strand if it
isn't "*".  I have some code for going the other direction too, if there is
