(sorry if I missed that) but who is the owner of PIR ? I am not aware 
of the fact that Dr. Pearson was involved, and if so, I would need to 
know because on bioftp.unibas.ch ( the data of PIR are 
available as well, and there I reference only PIR as the producer. 

Those of you who worry about the data on a european source, they're 
provided as '.ref', '.seq', '.nam' and '.header' files which makes it 
possible to use them in various packages. Look in ~archive_data/seq_data/pir 
if you need to. Though it is possible to download the files if would 
be a matter of honesty to tell the original providers where you took it 
from so that they have evidence to guess the ammount of 'customers' in the 
field. Same applies for me, as funding is hard to get, I'd certainly 
appreciate a note if you took it...
