Global settings are what using env. variables are for.  Why not set  
verbosity to whatever BIOPERLDEBUG is set to?  Or, if you don't like  
that, use a different env. variable for global settings.  If it isn't  
set then verbosity is 0 (default setting anyway).  verbose() is  
called in the Root constructor so it should always be set to a  
defined value.
