[Bioperl-l] Bio::WebAgent sleep warning

It depends. What triggers the sleeping? If it's part of every request  
that it processes then I'd agree. If it is triggered by failure to  
precede the next try then the failure is probably not expected  
(though possible), and hence should be reported by warn().

If it is just part of the polling cycle then there should probably be  
a limit up to which the time waited is considered 'normal' and after  
which it is considered 'excessive' and hence should be reported  
through warn().

My $0.02.
