         package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature;
         require Bio::Root::RootI;

         # later, in client code:
         package main;
         use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 3.14;

         ## alternative usage: NiftyFeature defines own $VERSION:
         package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature;
         my $VERSION = 9.8;

         # later in client code:
         package main;

         # ensure we're using an up-to-date BioPerl distribution
         use Bio::Perl 3.14;

         # NiftyFeature has its own versioning scheme:
         use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 9.8;


       This module provides a mechanism by which all other BioPerl modules can share the same
       $VERSION, without manually synchronizing each file.

       Bio::Root::RootI itself uses this module, so any module that directly (or indirectly) uses
       Bio::Root::RootI will get a global $VERSION variable set if it's not already.
