Thanks everyone for your further input.

Benjamini  has published numerous papers on the BH method and modifications 
(some dated 2006). It seems he still recommends the original BH method for 
general-purpose use, even though it does have a slight conservative bias 
(much smaller bias than Bonferroni - too conservative, or stand-alone - too 
liberal).

For DIF studies, a slight conservative bias is probably beneficial. 
Precision of computation is no problem with modern computers.
