Well, we come back to my original question in this thread. When can we 
consider the priority list item resolved? Is it resolved when we've sped 
it up as much as possible without doing anything drastic ('resolved 
fixed')? Or is it only resolved when we've done everything we can think 
of to speed it up, even drastic things? In the later case, do we just 
leave it 'verified' until some possible Bioperl 2.0, or do we instead 
just say 'resolved wontfix'?
