Hello friendly package maintainers:

I just installed bioperl to get started with this wonderful library.

While trying out the first getting-started script from
http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Bptutorial.pl  (see below), I realized that
the perl library Data::Stag.pm wasn't installed.

Since there is a debian package (libdata-stag-perl) that provides this
library, I am wondering if it would make sense to add it to the deps of


PS the example is the following:

use Bio::Perl;

# this script will only work if you have an internet connection on the
# computer you're using, the databases you can get sequences from
# are 'swiss', 'genbank', 'genpept', 'embl', and 'refseq'

$seq_object = get_sequence('swiss',"ROA1_HUMAN");
