You took that completely the wrong way. I am applying absolutely no 
value judgment on your suggestion. It may be an excellent one. I was 
simply explaining we have no programmatic way of requiring that modules 
use other modules - we rely on people following the advice/ status quo.

Given that, are you still suggesting that it would be better to advise 
people to use Bio::Root::SomeNewRunThing, or is 
Bio::Tools::Run::WrapperBase satisfactory?
