I have created branch 'branch-experimental' and committed the changes there.

Please test by checking out the experimental branch:
cvs co -d experimental -r branch-experimental bioperl-live

I'll probably end up writing a new pull/chunk parser for BLAST, but 
these changes will still speed up the other SearchIO modules. So test 
the speed-up on different kinds of report as well.

The experimental branch should be used for trying out major 
implementation changes that have the potential to break important and 
substantial parts of bioperl. Everything else should continue to be 
committed to HEAD until the 1.6 branch emerges (sometime next year).
