The taxonomy database in question is the NCBI taxonomy database which we
here at EBI have based on sequence databank collaboration. The data are
in table dumps read in relational system. I've been experimenting with
EMBL programmers to get a reasonable flat file out of it. Things have
been quite stable for some time now.
I'll find out if we can put the file in our public FTP server.
