Today I did a fresh CVS checkout of bioperl-live, and deleted the
following modules and tests, and all tests passed with BIOPERLDEBUG=0
* Bio::Root::Utilities # may be used by third parties?
* t/Root-Utilities.t # need to keep if we keep Utilities.pm
Should we schedule for deprecation, or deprecate immediately as Hilmar
suggested they were meant to be deprecated long ago ?
