No time like the present! This shouldn't affect any modules that
don't use your new RootI method (unless there is something I missed...).
One thing, though it's minor. The get/setters in the bioperl-run
wrappers may return different values upon a set (i.e. the previously
set value or the passed value). I have seen both get/setter types in
core, so my guess is run will also have the same.
