[Bioperl-l] Bio::Score of interest?

For the use case of TFBS analysis demonstrated in the attachment to the
bug, I would expect to find potentially three scores, ala, {evalue,
bitscore, and percentmatch}.  To deal with this in existing framework
(i.e. GFF/bioperl analysis modules/TFBS), I would try to make GFFx eat
scalars as scores and pack the three values into a string and unpack
them as needed for sorting, etc.  Else put the one score I know I'm
going to 'use' in a particular analysis into 'score' and adorn column 9
with the rest.

All this semantic cruft is overkill for a moving target and will never
settle down until your analysis results are no longer relevant.
