Great. Thanks Aaron. This is something really serious to get our teeth 
into. I'd just like to point out that we really do need some help trolling
around the blast code for the grab bag bugs. So... please feel free to ask
how to check out the stable branch to fix bugs. <hint>

Ditto... Many thanks kate.

[snipped out bug list].

When people fix bugs, make sure they move them off the incoming area
in the bug list. 

Perhaps we should set up a 0.6 folder for bugs posponed to 0.6 - or
perhaps use postpone.

This should be sorted for 0.05.2 - as we had it in 0.5.1 people will
be confused if it didn't work for 0.5.2 ;). I have sorted this out
(we will have a new optional package - bioperl-ext - that people need
to install).
