Peter (and fellow BioPerlers):

I think the tutorial is a great idea. BioPerl needs good documentation in a 
big way, and I promised Ewan at BOSC that I'd be willing to volunteer some 
time to the cause. So I'd be happy to sign on as your editor and help you 
get it ship-shape. I'm also a beginning Perl programmer, so I'm sure it'll 
help me learn more about both the language and BioPerl.

I'm in the process of finishing up O'Reilly's first bioinformatics book: 
Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills. I'd like to put a pointer to the 
tutorial in the book, but the URL is way too long. D'ya think we might 
convince the webmaster give it a shorter link that's suitable for publication?
