Parsing out ORFs?

readseq version2 may or may not help:
It will pull any feature annotations from genbank or embl sequence files.
If you feed readseq a file of many genbank/embl records, it will produce
output with the feature sequence separated by record.  If you feed it one
large sequence record (e.g., a chromosome) with many feature annotations,
it will join all the feature sequence into one output record (for that csome).

If you translate to embl/genbank while selecting a feature, the output
documentation will list the join() statements it used to make the output
sequence from the extracted features.

Readsesq will read ncbi's genome section .gbk files, but chokes on the large ones 
currently (I think I know the solution..).
