I know, but in my opinion it should be next(). Attaching the object type to
the method name is again that kind of redundancy, I'd like not to have.
Having a generic method name makes it easier to inherit and use the classes.
I've done this already in Bio::Variation::IO which inherits a lot from
Bio::SeqIO a but uses read() and write().
We could add read() and write() as an alternative to SeqIO so that all IO
classes could use the same method names.
