I'm fine with everything you said, but I'll just say that, at a minimum, 
the above is what needs to be done.

Someone needs to step up and organise that 3rd point, since it will 
require a lot of work. As I've already done work on the test suite, if 
no one else expresses an interest I might look into it myself.

Speaking of which, is there a way a file (like, oh, I don't know, 
bioperl-live/trunk/t/lib/BioperlTest.pm) can exist just once in SVN but 
be seen in other locations (like 
bioperl-run/trunk/t/lib/BioperlTest.pm)? Such that a commit to the 
version in bioperl-run also affects the version in bioperl-live? Or is 
there some appropriate other way to organise where cross-repository 
files are kept and dealt with?
