I'm not sure.
Does Bio::Index::Blast even work correctly? Does it suffer from whatever
bugs Bio::Tools::BPlite has? Is Bio::Index::Blast maintained? Should
that be deprecated as well?
Ideally I'd like to see Bio::Index::Blast updated to use Bio::SearchIO
and then Bio::Tools::BPlite can be deprecated. But like I say, it didn't
seem trivial (or even appropriate).
Ultimately I just wanted to solve the warnings in the test suite.
