EPD 54 new format

There appears to be a new EPD format for release 54.

I picked it up from ftp://ftp.epd.unil.ch/pub/databases/epd/ and
updated the epd.i, epd.is and epd.it files. It is a much nicer format,
though something strange is happening to the accession numbers.
For example, the first entry can be E17001, EP17001 or EP017001 but
there is nothing identical in the epd.dat and epd.blk files. Never mind,
I faked it thanks to Icarus :-)

I also indexed the .blk file as "EPDSEQ".

The epd Icarus files are available from our SRS5 server as usual:
