To everyone who uses RemoteBlast.pm:


Would anyone object to RemoteBlast being rewritten in a way that requires
NCBI's blastcl3 executable?


Binary downloads of blastcl3 (column "netblast") are available for numerous
platforms at: http://ncbi.nih.gov/BLAST/download.shtml


Does anyone require or desire a "pure perl" implementation? If so, please
explain the advantage you see with such an implementation.
