[Bioperl-l] Bio::Moose is now....

Biome!  This makes the most sense to me; as Mark points out the name  
works as an appropriate acronym (BioPerl with Metaclass Extensions),  
as well as a biome being (per wikipedia):

"a climatically and geographically defined areas of ecologically  
similar climatic conditions such as communities of plants, animals,  
and soil organisms ... often referred to as ecosystems".

Seems a fitting name for a open-source project.  I'll be moving the  
namespace over to Biome over the next couple of days on github.  Now I  
owe Mark some beer...

Now, for extensions, should I assume this will eventually be BioPerl2  
(and thus use BioX::*)?  Or stick with BiomeX::*?


PS: Just a quick benchmark for the current Bio::Moose::PrimarySeq  
implementation (we don't have SeqIO working as of yet, so the  
benchmark script does the heavy lifting):
