[Bioperl-l] Mixed bless-ings with Bio::Seq/Bio::PrimarySeq (Bio::Seq::Meta::Array)

I tend to agree on that front as it seems too prone to subtle issues  
with inheritance (as the bug demonstrates).

Related to that, do we want to have Bio::Seq::Meta::Array implement  
either PrimarySeqI or SeqI?  Having it implement both is definitely  
not working as expected.
