[Bioperl-l] Bio::Assembly::IO::bowtie circular dependency?

If I've learned anything from the 1.6 release series, I would rather it not be bound to the bioperl core release cycle, particularly if we are progressing towards splitting up bioperl anyway.  In that light it makes more sense (at least to me) to move this into either a focused set of modules for next-gen analysis, or as focused packages based on the specific functionality (e.g. all BowTie modules bundled together, all bioperl-related Samtools bundled together, etc).  

Bascially, we would set up both you and Dan as co-maintainers, and push all related code under the BIOPERLML CPAN mantle as primary maintainer.  This way any of the co-maintainers can step in and push out new releases if needed.
