[Bioperl-l] Bio::*Taxonomy* changes (Chris Fields)

It looks like most of the Bioperl scripts use Getopt::Long. It's
documentation says, in part:

Options can take multiple values at once, for example

    --coordinates 52.2 16.4 --rgbcolor 255 255 149

This can be accomplished by adding a repeat specifier to the option
specification. Repeat specifiers are very similar to the {...} repeat
specifiers that can be used with regular expression patterns. For example,
the above command line would be handled as follows:

    GetOptions('coordinates=f{2}' => \@coor, 'rgbcolor=i{3}' => \@color);

So the arguments are space-delimited on the command line. Is the problem
that the names can be binomial?
