If it were only pure python, I might agree with you.  But given there
is C code which might well be worthwhile for speed, I'm not in any
hurry to remove Bio.listfns until Bio.MaxEntropy.py, Bio.NaiveBayes
and Bio.MarkovModel don't need it.  Labelling Bio.listfns as likely to
be deprecated and removed in the future should suffice for the time
