Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.

Sure. Why don't you send along the latest version and I'll try and get 
SteveB and myself going on this.

I think Chris is in the best position to getting wrapped up. I 
still feel we should bundle ReadSeq with it, so every installation is 
guaranteed full functionality. Before doing this, we should get Don 
Gilbert's approval so one of us (Chris?) should drop him a line.

You could get us started by setting up the Blast Module Development page 
(or maybe just a new section on the Bioperl home page) in which we could 
put links to sites of the different existing implementations. I've 
recently started fleshing out the documentation for my Blast module, 
so you could add a link to this page:

I don't yet have a distribution package ready to go, but there are links 
to source code.

I think Joe Ryan's recent suggestion about a Blast:: module 
name space makes alot of sense. My module would be more appropriately named since it has no methods for executing BLAST runs. My 
module also relies on two helper modules which could go in this name
