Computer readable FASTA output

Just one little suggestion -- I have found it very useful
when program output or database entries include an
end-of-record delimiter (such as the line with only // 
in many of the biodatabase flat file formats).  
This way, a parser can know when to stop -- which means you
can embed data in a mail message and still be able to parse
it.  It also tends to improve human readability.
