Bio/GFF/easy.py contains the functions forward_complement and 
reverse_complement, which return the forward and reverse complement of a 
sequence object. I had been looking for such functions in Biopython for a while, 
but I assumed that they were not available as I didn't find them in Bio/Seq.py. 
I'd like to propose to move those two functions there. Note that Bio.SeqUtils 
contains similar functions that work on strings but not on sequence objects. Any
