Nice idea, I'll check with Jason if it's possible (in mediawiki) to 
create a new Documentation sidebar to hold this 4 sections.

My concept is that Tutorials cover a wider aspect of BioPerl, contrary 
to the HOWTO's which focus on a certain topic.

I don't know, maybe because it was important when Jason started the Wiki 
a couple of months ago. Do you think it should be erased from the sidebar?
