       The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods.  Internal methods are

        Title   : new
        Usage   :
        Function: We override the constructor here to set is_coding to false

        Example :
        Returns :
        Args    :

        Title   : primary_tag
        Usage   : $tag = $feat->primary_tag()
        Function: Returns the primary tag for a feature,
                  eg 'utr5prime'.  This method insures that 5prime/3prime information
                  is uniformly stored
        Returns : a string
        Args    : none
