[Bioperl-l] TRANSFAC Bio::Matrix::PSM support

I am dropping support for the module parsing TRANSFAC, therefore any 
changes to the format will make this parser useless. This is because of 
TRANSFAC becoming increasingly restrictive and implementing their policy:
http://www.biobase.de/cgi-bin/pub/databases/transfac/getTF.cgi (I belive 
you will not find this policy elsewhere which is, hmmm fishy).
I think open source code should not be providing code to proprietary 
projects. I may be wrong. Of course anyone who wants can keep maintain 
this module.
