[Bioperl-l] Batch GenPept - up and running?

I noticed (via bioperl-live) that Bio::DB::GenPept hasn't been updated
since 11/21/2002 and states that currently batch requests aren't supported,
but there is a batch option in %PARAMSTRINGS. I just wanted to see whether
anyone knows if Bio::DB::GenPept allows batch sequence requests to NCBI
Entrez, or are there other alternatives (Bio::DB::GenBank)?
I searched the online archives and couldn't find much. I need to download
~1000-1500 sequences with info extracted from BLASTP reports and place them
into a database and I really don't want to spam that many individual
sequence requests to Entrez if I can avoid it.
