       Bio::Factory::MapFactoryI - A Factory for getting markers


           # get a Map Factory somehow likely from Bio::MapIO system

           while( my $map = $mapin->next_map ) {
               print "map name is ", $map->name, " length is ",
                   $map->length, " ", $map->units, "\n";


       This interface describes the necessary minimum methods for getting Maps from a data
       stream.  It also supports writing Map data back to a stream.
