bioperl-live is the name of the CVS repository containing what is 
currently considered the 'Core package' or core modules.

If you want to call it something to distinguish it from stable, call it 
'developer' vs 'stable' or '1.5.2' vs '1.4.0'.

To distinguish them both from the other packages, call them 'core' vs 
'run' etc.
