I agree. There's really not that many terribly useful things you can  
do with Bioperl w/o having IO::String installed, which is in stark  
contrast to many other dependencies.

I don't have a problem with making it (and a few others used all over  
the place) required, to better contrast them with the dependencies  
that are really optional (and not needed for 90% of users).
