This BTW is not restricted to Bio::LiveSeq::*. You can find it all over
the place. People seem to dislike quoting hash keywords. If one quote
takes you 1 second to type (if you need to switch constantly between
American and European keyboards, you're never sure where the quote key
sits), omitting it could amount to saving at least 1 or 2 minutes per
module written ...
