Hi SRS developers,

could you clarify something in SRS5.05 for me. I have some applications
that generate sequences (e.g contig assembbly). However, as applications
they have to be in $library.group @APPLICATION_LIBS, not @SEQUENCE_LIBS.

Is there any way to be able to treat the database generated from the
application as a sequence dastabase, and hence be able to run further
applications on them. I note there is a $library.datatype parameter that
can be set to noseq, dna or protein, but setting this appears to have no
effect (and this parameter is not used in any .i files).

The only solution to me appears to be to call getz once the application
database has been created, to generate all the sequences in the
application database as a seperate file that can then be indexed as a
sequence database, and then link from the application database to the
sequence database to get a the sequences. Not a very elegant solution!

Suggestions welcome.
