[Biopython-dev] Making mxTextTools an optional dependency insetup.py

The fewer dependencies, the merrier; having two mxTextTools versions makes
this dependency even trickier. I am not sure though how much of Biopython
needs mxTextTools.

I'd like to update setup.py to make mxTextTools optional for
installing Biopython (the same status as ReportLab and Numeric).  We
can still encourage people to install it for those part of Biopython
which do still use it, but I think a good proportion doesn't need it

Any comments?
