[Bioperl-l] How to read in the whole fasta file in the memory?

We typically think of SeqIO as parsing a stream of data, not being  
reliant on it being a file which is what these methods would be  
implying I think. Sounds a lot like a database - does Bio::DB::Fasta  
not provide some of the functionality you need by these methods?  I  
realize there isn't a by_order() but the get_by_id() is implemented to  
allow random access.
