The coverage function is still inconvenient to use with a vector of weights to convert a GRanges metadata column into a RleList object.

"The coverage method for GRanges could gain a default value argument."
- Michael Lawrence, January 2013.

"Something like coverage(foo, bar, ..., NA.value=-1)?"
- Tim Triche, Jr., January 2013.

Might this plan be restored (with a default value of 0 for backwards compatibility)?
