[Bioperl-l] Bio::Tools::dpAlign feature request

Safe to ignore the tests.  Those that are failing aren't even test for  
Bio::Align::dpAlign - but were written to test a bug that has not been  
fixed in the EVD module if I remember correctly that is why they are  
marked in a TODO block, but I can't tell if the Test.pm is actually  
skipping these tests or not.

I think we probably need to deprecate some of these modules as there  
is no maintainer of Ewan's code in here.

At a minimum we need to modularlize the tests for these modules into  
separate t dir and fix the need for multiple Makefile.PL in here and  
probably move to Build.PL
