It is preferable to have ->new syntax over new Object syntax, as 
outlined here: 
http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Bioperl_Best_Practices#BioPerl_Object-oriented_programming_and_modules

I propose making this syntax change in all Bioperl POD documentation, so 
that the bad syntax is no longer suggested/encouraged. Any objections? 
If not, I'll go ahead and commit the changes.

(affects 907 modules in live)


Cheers,
Sendu.
