[Newbies] Interval>>copyFrom:to:

Could someone  explain why:

      (5 to: 100010) copyFrom: 3 to: 1000000

returns an Array rather than an Interval?

Returning an Interval is more intuitive to me
since the copyFrom:to: message is being sent
to an Interval.
Of course, for the the example above at least,
it is more efficient as well.
