[Bioperl-l] Bio::Biblio - small but important changes

   I have slightly changed the Bio::Biblio modules that use SOAP to get to
the MEDLINE repository (at EBI). The changes are two - and neither of them
should have any impact on your code (because the interface of Bio::Biblio
has not been changed). Therefore, it should be enough just to update your 
local copy of these modules.

   Anyway, the changes are:

   1) The default location of the MEDLINE/EBI Web Service changed. The new 
one is http://www.ebi.ac.uk/openbqs/services/MedlineSRS.

   2) The Web Service API (that is hidden to most of you by the 
Bio::Biblio's API) has changed in order to comply with the WSDL 
specification (method overloading has been removed - that's why some 
method names changed there).

   Of couse, I will be happy to hear about any problems you may (hopefully
not) meet after these changes.
