Just a warning on this: we're shortly to announce a major restructuring effort with BioPerl that will dramatically affect core versioning, mainly from the point of view that modularizing BioPerl into more manageable sub-distributions will require that each sub-distribution have it's own version (not necessarily a bad thing).
