I see your point, however the specific application is another bioperl
module, bioperl-db and in biopeerl-db we don't want to do carry the main
seqid through many objects, do you have any proposal to solve this?

I see one simple option, to reimplement is_remote becomes something like
_is_remote_in_parser, which should make us all happy, how does it sound?
Other suggestions?
