Forgot to mention in the last post, but it might be wise to think  
ahead a bit about namespace conflicts.  For instance, I wouldn't port  
modules into Bio::* due to potential conflicts with non-Moose BioPerl  
modules (unless you want to stick everything into a Bio::Moose, which  
I don't think is a good idea for a base namespace).

One could possibly use a variation on Bio* for Moose-related  
development (BioMoose or similar).
