Hi Shaun,

the biology:: facet was the product of a disucussion during which I had some
misunderstandings about debtags. I wouldn't mind to see it removed.

Here is the lastest wishlist I made to the Debtags team:

I would of course welcome the creation of a works-with-format:: tags for the
bioinformatics programs we package.

Have a nice day,
