It's true that sometimes you get bitten by Rle's popping up where you
didn't expect them when you try and index things and need to do some
as.vector() mojo here and there, but in this case it should actually
work (depending on your version of R/bioc, I guess).
In my case (running R-2.15 RC), the Rle "surprise" doesn't catch you
here, but it's still a good idea to keep in mind.
Thanks for pointing that out!
