[Biopython-dev] mmLib/Biopython

Hi all,

I see there's been a small discussion about merging mmLib into
BioPython.  I'd personally really like to see that happen, so if there
is any interest from the BioPython developers, we could start working on
a plan to do so.  The only way such a merge would really be practical is
to have both the current BioPython structure modules and mmLib modules
be independent libraries at first, and then slowly integrate features of
the two over a number of release cycles.  I can't really have any of my
applications breaking, and I'm sure there are plenty of BioPython users
who would prefer not to have to change their code either.
