A bit more than half is still using Test:

~/src/bioperl/core/t>  perl -lne 'print $1 if /use +(Test[^\sO;]*);/' *t | 
sort | uniq -c | sort -nr
    147 Test
     97 Test::More


Feel free to add scripts and functionality into core/maintenance directory of 
bioperl-live if you want to keep track of things in modules and tests.
