I would rephrase the question. I think it's a very valuable addition
to BioPerl, and the above may be understood as a vote on that, which
AFAIAC is not a vote we need to have.
Instead, I would ask the following. Generally, i) are there any
opinions on whether the Bio::XXX root namespace should be permissively
expanded, and ii) should new modules that have not been reviewed yet
by core devs be included in a stable release. Specifically with
respect to Bio::PhyloNetwork, are there opinions on i) moving or not
moving this to the Bio::Phylo::Network namespace, and on ii)
harmonizing or not the API as much as possible with the Bio::Tree APIs.
(Chris - you would probably agree that the publication neither answers
the above questions, nor guarantees for the API's stability.)
