For some of the example use cases I have in mind, I'd first
have to generate a start column of ones (beginning of the
sequence), and an end column of the length of the sequence.
But yes, I can see how this could be done.

Putting GOPS into the Galaxy tool search brings up the
Operate on Genomic Intervals section, is GOPS short
genomic interval operations?

Right, while of course preserving the (now misleading) tool
ID of  "Extract genomic DNA 1" and filename of
extract/extract_genomic_dna.xml for backwards

I'll take a look at this then - thanks,
