As a staunch xemacs-ophile I couldn't let that one slip by. Maybe we
could improve the visibility of bioperl.lisp. In truth, I had
forgotten about it, though lit turns out I was loading an old version
of it. (Btw, using the latest version of bioperl.lisp with xemacs
21.4.17, I don't get a bioperl menu item, though I can access bioperl
functions via M-x. Suggestions?)

I see bioperl.lisp is mentioned twice parenthetically in the advanced
bioperl wiki page. Perhaps a separate 'Editor/IDE support' item here
would help. While we're at it, maybe we could add a bioperl.vi file to
the distribution (if you can do such things with vi/vim).

Another idea: Add a method naming check to the set of audits we
perform on CVS committed code. It could check for agreement with our
conventions and warn if nothing was found (may not be a problem
