[Bioc-devel] as.table not available for HitsList anymore?

Hej Hervé (I guess that ones for you :-)!

In R dev / Bioc 3.3; calling as.table on an HitsList stopped working:

Browse[2]> ovl
HitsList of length 6
names(6): chr2L chr2R chr3L chr3R chr4 chrX
Browse[2]> as.table(ovl)
Error during wrapup: cannot coerce to a table

I suppose this may have to do with the refactoring of the IRanges/S4Vectors packages? Will the functionality be re-instated, or should I switch my code to using as.matrix instead?
