[bioontology-support] api key not working

Hi Trish,

It turns out it was a problem in my code.  I had added the api key parameter
quite a while ago when it was first announced.  I thought it was working but
I guess I was deluded and that it was not being checked for on your end
until the beginning of July.

Anyway, the problem seems to have been solved,
