Your are fixing Bioperl 1.x, right? :-) So, if you fixed it as much  
as you could without turning Bioperl 1.x into Bioperl 2.x it is  
resolved, or if there is no such fix, won't fix.

If you have ideas though for how to do it better, just you can't  
implement those thoughts because of compatibility constraints, it's  
always worthwhile capturing them and write them down on e.g. a wiki  
page, such as one that collects thoughts towrds Bioperl 2.x, or call  
it Bioperl-Warp9 ;)
