 Function: Builds a new Bio::Ontology::TermFactory object 
 Returns : Bio::Ontology::TermFactory
 Args    : -type => string, name of a Bio::Ontology::TermI derived class.
                    The default is Bio::Ontology::Term.

create_object

 Title   : create_object
 Usage   : my $term = $factory->create_object(<named parameters>);
 Function: Instantiates new Bio::Ontology::TermI (or one of its child classes)

           This object allows us to genericize the instantiation of
           Term objects.

 Returns : Bio::Ontology::TermI compliant object
           The return type is configurable using new(-type =>"...").
 Args    : initialization parameters specific to the type of term
           object we want.  Typically 
           -name        => $name
           -identifier  => identifier for the term
           -ontology    => ontology for the term
