[Bioperl-l] NCBI Blast via HTTP

I tried this today and had no issues.  The NCBI BLAST server is  
typically busy so you may have to wait dep. on the type of BLAST you  
intend on running, whether you use stats, etc.  You can check on the  
status if you set RemoteBlast::verbose() to 1.  Warning: it's pretty  
noisy as verbose returns the HTMLized page containing the length of  
time to recheck the RID.
