Well, how would you 'require' them to use anything at all? There's not 
even anything 'requiring' that a core module inherit from 
Bio::Root::Root(I). We just (very strongly) advise that you inherit from 
there. So we can also advise that bioperl-run wrappers do not roll their 
own but use Bio::Tools::Run::WrapperBase.
