I'm going to do one final merge from HEAD to branch-1-5-2 and then set 
the final release tags later today, so a) anything done at the hackathon 
won't make any difference, and b) the release should go out soon.

The release will go ahead when I've sorted out the Windows PPM and the 
Change Log (neither of which require code changes on the branch).

On this schedule I won't be able to implement Conrad's pre-req 
installation order in Build.PL since that would require a substantial 
change to ModuleBuildBioperl.pm and another RC. I'll do that after 
release so that 1.5.3 benefits.
