That's quite a dangerous proposition you're making there. Does that
mean I get a free ride to request any possible program or bugfix and
so on? I'll have to think about this some more.

Thank you for the git repo :-).

I've been doing some work on XMLization of lab protocols. Would you be
interested in this? It's kind of a cross-section of managing an
experiment and doing some programming, meanwhile bioperl has
traditionally focused on access to bioinformatics datasets, which
sadly doesn't include protocols (yikes!).
