Didn't realize there was a version() already.

I agree that WrapperBase fulfills most of this functionality.
However, don't a few bioperl-run wrappers 'roll their own', i.e. not
implement WrapperBase? Requiring all bioperl-run module inherit the
same Run-specific base object would integrate them a bit more and
distinguish them from the core modules (which would inherit
Bio::Root::Root). Anyway, it's just a suggestion.
