Already done - probably while you were sleeping! :o)

The problem with Bundel::BioPerl is that updated versions would need to 
be backwards compatible since PPM always installs/updates the latest 
version of a package. Therefore, it would need to be backward compatible 
with Bioperl 1.4 and compatible with Bioperl 1.5.2 - this could lead to 
additional bloat for 1.4 users and also for dependencies removed between 
1.4 and 1.5.2.

Any thoughts on that?
