[Bioc-sig-seq] Suggest enhancement in GRanges: add method setAs("Granges", "IntervalTree")

I find it might be a bit more convenient to create an
as(GRanges.object, "IntervalTree") method, so one doesn't have to
check if the ranges object is an IRanges or GRanges object. Would you

For various reasons, I pass these types of objects into similar
places, so (IMHO) adding a setAs method in the GenomicRanges would be

setAs("GRanges", "IntervalTree", function(from) as(ranges(from),
