[Bioperl-l] Entrez Gene parser questions

I would appreciate help with the following.  First of all, I would like to say it's great that a Entrez gene parser was written. I just have some questions to get me started.  

A) I already have bioperl 1.4 installed.  I would like to know if I can install the Entrez gene parser and 
Stefan Kirov's entrezgene.pm with out reinstalling bioperl.  If this is not advised then I would reinstall bioperl.

I was going to 1. install the Bio::ASN1::EntrezGene module (perl Makefile.PL, make, make test, make install, etc...)
		   2. just take only the entrezgene.pm and util.pm file and put it in the appropriate directory
               (which util.pm shold I use??  I searched CPAN and got many results for util.pm
               is it Biblio::Util, Boulder::Util, or something else??)

B) For each Entrez gene id how do I access the associated Unigene id, accession numbers, gene symbol, gene name,
And GO IDs.  

Also, I have been looking at the code and the POD within it.  Are there some other places that I can look for documentation?

Thanks so much!!
