That's a good workaround Martin. Do you perhaps also know
if something like this can be done:


so using the EMBL_FORMAT (libformat) object for the
creation of the EMNEW_FORMAT object... it doesn't work
this way. Also, I've been trying things like 

$ParObj:[name:EMNEW_FORMAT set:($ParObj:[name:EMBL_FORMAT])]

but that didn't work... 

so for the moment we've got 4 identical formats defined
in embl.i  ... but we can live with that.
