[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.
