I'll ask the bioinformatics team (cc'ed here). Which packages do you
maintain support the FASTQ format other than MAQ?

I noticed biology::format:fasta only after I suggested
works-with-format::fasta. I'm now asking what the difference between
the two would be. The two categories biology::format and
works-with-format seem redundant.
