No argument from me, but I do have a related question:

I often have 3-4 bioperls on my system at once - currently, 1.02, 1.21 and bioperl-live.
This can make debugging fun - if I land in a particular module, it's hard to know which release it came from, so it's hard to tell if I've hit a version change or a bug.

Is there a way to get information on which _release_ a module belongs to?  If not, could this be implemented - perhaps in Bio::Root::Root since (afaik) all Bio:: modules inherit from this?
