Thanks for pointing this out. The reason this became necessary all
of a sudden was probably that I removed the respective lines from
SeqIO.pm, because there was no obvious reason to keep them. Since
I still think that the 'use' statements are better in those files
where the modules are really used, I left it that way and added
the necessary use statements to all other SeqIO modules (which
probably would all have complained sooner or later).

We don't want SeqIO modules to inherit from Bio::Seq.
