[Bioperl-l] Priorities for a bioperl-1.6 release

I agree with Chris that the next BioPerl release should be 1.6.

Shunting abandoned, experimental, and less-developed code to "bioperl-dev"
would be extremely beneficial. As Chris stated, not only does it reduce the
number of modules needing full test coverage, but the most important core
modules are the ones most likely to have good test coverage already. And it
would make BioPerl easier to grok for newcomers, too, which is always nice.

I've made a first go at dividing the current bioperl core along these lines
here:

It's a very rough cut, so those with more familiarity with the bioperl
corpus, please go in and rearrange as you see fit.
