[Bioperl-l] version() vs seq_version()

Versioning of a sequence database entry and of the sequence itself  
need not be the same thing.

Though I guess one can argue that in practice incrementing the version  
of a sequence would invariably also increment the version of the  
database entry. However, I'm not sure the reverse can necessarily be  
taken for granted.
