        If suggestions for the next version of BLAST are being made, it would
be nice to have a compact list of sequences with indicators of degree of
homology (based on the probability values?), like that near the top of FASTA
outputs, and options for a potentially lengthy list of homologous sequences,
but a resticted number of alignments to be generated.  This might be a better
way to deal with e-mail size restrictions that just truncating the current
