The organization is brand new and still being worked out - I think Nico's
suggestion to get Serge's and my code merged as soon as possible is a good
idea.  Fortunately, Serge and I seem to have been working on slightly
different areas of the same BioPHP concept, so there shouldn't be any 
"clashes" of having two modules that do the same thing to reconcile.

And don't feel bad about not knowing CVS...I'm still getting it worked out
myself, and I keep making a fool of myself messing up imports of the code
(the new 'generic' xml parser class, query poster, and esearch modules, in
their earliest working "semi-official" state, are now up there...but they've
ended up in "biophp/biophp/sean/semi-official" this time...

I need to figure out how to remove the whole structure and start again

Well, the main reason is that we both started up our projects about a week or
two apart without know the other was doing the same! (It looks like Serge's
project beat mine to going "live" by a week or two - I actually had a web page
up much longer than that, but since it was only a single page that just said
something to the effect of "wouldn't BioPHP be nice to have?" and had no
real "substance" to it I don't think that counts...).
