For the parsing:
Unfortunately, I doubt that it was written for SignalP 3.0 since it  
was probably written before that came out and it hasn't been updated  
much since then.   I think it needs a owner at this point as well as  
the original devs on this have moved on.
Can you perhaps provide good example files for 3.0 output?

For the Running:
It was written quite a while ago by the fugu folks and I think they  
just hardcoded the parameters -- if you look at
_run code you see this in the setup string:
"-t euk -trunc 50 "

So this is an example of an orphaned module that needs someone to  
bring it up to date with the current standards of the bioperl-run  
Sorry to not have better news than that....
