  Description     : Java implementation of the Nested Containment List data structure

NCList provides efficient lookup of intervals overlapping a given range in
time O(M log N) where N is the number of intervals stored, and M the number
of overlaps found.

- is parameterised by <T extends IntervalI>;
- so can store any Java type that implements IntervalI, that is, has methods
 getBegin() and getEnd() (where begin <= end);
- extends java.util.AbstractCollection<T>;
- may be referred to as Collection<T> in code;
- exposes methods for add, contains, remove, iterator, size etc;
- has a 'bulk load' constructor, and methods to add or remove entries, while
 retaining lookup efficiency;
- optimises storage and search of sparsely nested intervals by storing
 non-nested intervals separately;
- incorporates NCList to store any properly nested intervals.

This package is needed as a dependency of jalview, which is currently updated
as we have a quite old version of it in Debian. jalview now relies on it.

It will be maintained inside the Debian Java team.
