What does the future hold for running applications within BioPerl?

We are trying to build a standard starting point for analysis application which will probably look like Bio::Tools::Run::AnalysisFactory which will allow the user to request which type of remote or local server they want to use to run their analyses. This will connect to the Pasteur's PISE server, the EBI's Novella server, as well as be aware of wrappers to run applications locally.
