[Bioperl-l] Bioperl 1.5.2 RC1

So far all tests pass on Mac OS X.  I'll add this to the release page.

This RC will throw warnings for four tests I didn't remove in time  
(BPlite.t, BPpsilite, BPbl2seq.t, and RestrictionEnzyme.t), which  
correspond to their namesake deprecated Bio::Tools modules.  These  
are no longer in CVS HEAD so should be gone by the next RC, and the  
relevant modules marked for deprecation.

I can verify the Bio::DB::SeqFeature.t warning on Mac OS X that  
Florin reported, but ESEFinder.t works fine:

t/BioDBSeqFeature............Argument "+" isn't numeric in numeric lt  
(<) at Bio/DB/SeqFeature/Segment.pm line 423.

I'll report WinXP tests tomorrow on the wiki.
