If the tests for Bio::Root::Storable still pass (I assume that they do),
then the module is working as advertised.
The idea behind Storable is very simple; object instances of any
inhereting class can be serialised/retrieved from disk. BioPerl objects
will probably not want this functionality by default, but it is trival to
implement if needed.
