the main obstacle to this and other improvements such as offline indexing
was the complexity of the srscheck program. It grew over the last years into
a bit of a monster that made extensions impossible. We rewrote it
in the last days and it feels much lighter now. We plan for 5.2 to have
a working solution for the offline indexing and hopefully the
parallelization of the EMBL indexing. The new srscheck will produce the
old srsupdate and/or a makefile which allows the whole updating process
to be parallelized.
