probably a FAQ, but:
	the srs.relnotes says that compressed databases can be used, How?

I would like to keep the data (eg, swissprot: seq.dat) as seq.dat.Z on
disk and run it through zcat to build the index. is this "the right way"
to do it? if not, then how? 

i'm still trying to wade through the manuals - is there anyone working
on improving readability (and do they want a hand?)
