#16 make regions persistent across data sources

Gbrowse (28)

Instead of remembering the selected region on a per-source basis, have the currently selected region be sticky across sources. Requested by Nick Baker <nbaker@aecom.yu.edu> when browsing the Flybase site and going from the Insertions to Stock Collections data sources.

    I don't think this is realistic, but let me make sure I understand what you want. You start out in GBrowse at FlyBase, and then you go to a Stock Collections GBrowse, which is on another server (actually, I don't think the location of the second server matters). One instance of GBrowse doesn't know anything about another. What you could ask the FlyBase and Stock Collections people to do is integrate their GBrowse instances better. For example, if you are going from FlyBase's GBrowse to the Stock Collection, FlyBase could write their GBrowse so that links from it to Stock Collection would carry along the information about the source sequence that was looked at when at FlyBase.
