This is a set of convenience macros for developers who use Emacs, but it's 
pretty out of date.  Some may still use it, though.  It's of no use being 
in the package distribution, however.

if their current version is greater than the bioperl version, then they 
must keep it for backwards compatibility (as otherwise a "require" 
statement for a certain version of Bio::SeqIO::tinyseq won't work 
properly).
