[Bioperl-l] [Bioperl-guts-l] moving tests to use Test::More

It should be easy enough to find those t/*.t files that have "use Test;" 
or "require Test;" This should provide a list of files still needing to 
be converted over to Test::More. As discussed previously, it may also be 
useful to use Test::Exception to test for situations where 
exceptions/warnings are thrown. If you add additional tests using this 
module, you should add the Test::Exception module to t/lib/

Good luck, and feel free to mail the list with questions/comments etc.
