OK, I think everyone would like to see this...

Let me emphasise that no change has been made to the coordinate frame for the
CDSs, its all just as it was...

What I have done is fix a bug whereby, for reverse strand CDS objects, if you
wished to specify a start position, you were forced to specify both the start
and end positions of the CDS before the fmap code recognised the new start
position. This fix is in Augusts build.
