 From my understanding, a module to _parse the output_ of some TOOL goes 
in Bio::Tools::TOOL. The wrapper to _run_ TOOL goes in 
Bio::Tools::Run::TOOL. Usually the run() method in Bio::Tools::Run::TOOL 
takes the TOOL output and creates a Bio::Tools::TOOL object with the 
result in it as a convenience.
