Note that my module for running Blasts is separate from my parsing module
(Blast.pm). I have decided to make Blast.pm be essentially devoted to
parsing and act as a wrapper for other Blast-related tasks. This makes
it easier to use since you only need to remember "use Bio::Tools::Blast;"
to get whichever functionality you need.
