[Biopython-dev] move Martel CVS to biopython

Hey all,

  The Martel changes now are all very minor so I want
to move the CVS tree for Martel over to the biopython
tree.  As I mentioned some time ago, I would like to
have it be parallel to the "Bio" level and set up to
be distributable on its own.

  What are the problems with that?  One is that it
would be nice if the biopython distribution only
installs one additional name to the module import
namespace.  Another is that it complicates a biopython
install by either automatically installing another
package (since Martel could already exist) or by
requiring another dependency.

  I don't think either of those are serious, but
are there any other reasonable objections?

  Also, I'm told that I can just drop in the whole Martel
CVS tree into the biopython CVS tree and have it all
work.  Anyone ever done that?  I'll experiment with it
anyway before actually doing it.
