Compression or discard?

Dear SRS-gurus

Hmmm I am setting up SRS locally for myself here (good job
on the installation instructions). I have swissprot and embl.dat
databases here.

Its getting quite large, and I wouldn't mind having a more paired
down subset of, in particular the EMBL database (ie, I can discard all
the author etc information). Is there any way of doing this inside SRS:
or should I write a perl script that goes through each .dat file and
simply removes the EMBL lines that I don't need? What does SRS need/not
need in embl .dat and do I have to change some of the sdl stuff - what
happens if SRS expects some line which I have removed from the .dat file?

any comments? Pointers? help?

thanks alot
