I have added Root::Utilities back to CVS but I didn't know if I
should add back the other related Root modules (didn't know what your
future plans were for them). Could the Bio::Root::Global and
Bio::Root::Object stuff be consolidated into Bio::Root::Utilities or
would that be too problematic? None of the other Bio* modules
currently use them.
Personally, I use Date::Manip for anything that requires date/time
manipulation (updating seq records based on dates, for instance).
Some of the other utilities could come in handy, though. Don't know
if that helps...
