Well, according to a comment in Bio::Root::Object:
# This object is deprecated as the root of the inheritance tree, but some
# modules depend on it as a legacy. We issue a deprecation warning for all
# other modules.
my @inheriting_modules = ('Bio::Root::Object',
Nothing seems to use IOManager (except Object), and its also redundant.
So I'd say they're both relics that can be removed. In fact I was
planning on getting rid off all references to both of these modules
before you did, so thanks! :)
