You can now get_Stream_by_batch($var) where $var can be a filename,
filehandle, or array reference, any of which contain a list of ID's.  This
is a much nicer interface to Entrez, in that their server only get's hit
once (as opposed to get_Stream_by_id/acc() which actually hits it once for
every id in the array ref).  The Batch Entrez interface can be used to
obtain organism-specific sequences as well, if anyone thinks we want this
I can throw it in as well:

$AllMiceSeqsInGenBank = get_Stream_by_organism("mus musculus");

The DB.t test seems to work okay now (although I don't have access to a
machine that has perl that doesn't have internet access to check the

I have some beginning FASTA result objects in the works, I'll post some
stuff later ...
