I'm in favour of this (and have actually chatted to Leighton about
this off list).
One small thing I would change is switching colour to color for the
argument/properties (the American spelling of color is the norm in all
programming usage). Anyone using the existing stand alone
GenomeDiagram library would have to make some small changes anyway
(new import statements), so if there are going to be any other API
changes it would be best to do them at the same time.
