[Bioperl-l] RootI detachment proposal.

[Ewan recovers from rereading the Bio::Root:: stuff...]

This is *mainly* for Jason and Hilmar, but in case there are other
people who want to chip in:

I want to completely detach RootI from the other Root::Objects (in
particular Err). This means a heavy refactoring of RootI - mainly in 
removing the code.

I will keep ->throw and ->warn but not ->verbose as a real method. (jason
- do you mind this?) (I will have a "deprecation warning" on verbose)

I am planning to do this on my local copy now and see how it pans out...

Bio::Root::Object in it's full glory will still be there for modules we
have not migrated to Bio::Root::RootI

thoughts anyone?
