Chris,

OK. In fact there's no written guarantee that all Bio::Index* modules have
an id_parser() method. It happens that most do, and it's useful. I'll fix
the documentation in Bio::Index::Blast and add an enhancement request to
Bugzilla, may be able to get around to before 1.5.2 release but no promises.
