[Bioperl-l] Bio::Tk::HitDisplay

Hi all,

I've committed a Frame-based Tk widget to Bio::Tk which represents
Blast/Fasta results as sets of coloured bars on a canvas. A demo
script called hitdisplay.pl is in bioperl-live/examples and contains
example code for transforming a BPlite Blast Hit into the data
structure used by the widget to draw the picture.

There's some fairly complete pod documentation and lots of code
comments. A few things need improving, like show/hiding annotation
text for all hits can be very slow when there are a lot of HSPs
displayed. I guess that there's some standard gui-programming tricks
to sort this out.
