What was wrong with Bio::Tools::Blast?

Bio::Tools::Blast* is no longer supported, as of BioPerl version 1.1. Nothing is really wrong with it, it has just been outgrown by a more generic approach to reports. This generic approach allows us to just write pluggable modules for FASTA and BLAST parsing while using the same framework. This is completely analogous to the Bio::SeqIO system of parsing sequence files. However, the objects produced are of the Bio::SearchIO rather than Bio::Seq variety.
