It might help it you wrote these out explicitly,
>>> from Bio.SeqFeature import *
>>> a = BeforePosition(10)
>>> b = AfterPosition(10)
>>> a == b == 10
Currently BeforePosition and AfterPosition act like
the integer position for comparison etc. I find this
reasonable given we have to treat them as the
integer for things like extracting the sequence.

Something like test_SeqFeature.py and using
unittest. Most existing tests in this area are in
doctests and test_SeqIO_feature.py
