That might depend on what $hit_object is (Bio::Search::Hit::GenericHit 
?), but I'd say it's probably a bug if you get over 1. Can you give an 
example where you got over 1? Provide the code and the input data.

No, empty parentheses are only needed to make it clear to the perl 
interpreter you are calling a subroutine in ambiguous cases; 
$obj->method isn't ambiguous.
