Hi Chris,

I was also doing some parsing of UniGene at the time but found  
RecDescent was too slow and went back to regexes. That code found  
it's way into Bio::Cluster. Occasionally I see a message with someone  
looking for a Homologene parser but not very often, so I'm not sure  
it is worth the effort of moving the code into bioperl.

Cheers, Andrew.
