Hello Peter & BioPerl team,

Are there any plans to add NCBI 'rpsblast' support to StandAloneBlast.pm ?

The binary is called 'rpsblast'.
The command line options are a similar to 'blastall' and 'blastpgp'.
The databases are often stored in $BLASTDB/CDD/ but don't have to be.

I've looked at StandAloneBlast.pm and I think I could maybe patch in support
but thought I should check with the experts who might have advice on any
refactoring or re-use of existing code.

Thanks for any help,
