Thure and I had a go on the taxonomy files. Take a look at 


The line codes are now there for command line access and a new view has
been created for viewing and navigating the hierarchy. It's not perfect,
yet, but maybe after the next SRS version...

All Thure's examples from the previous message on this thread work now.
tax_dn needs to be writen tax_down:

getz -e '[taxonomy-taxon:caenorhabditis elegans] >^ tax_up'
getz -e '[taxonomy-taxon:nematoda]>^tax_down'
getz -e '[taxonomy-taxon:nematoda]>_tax_down'

The queries inside '' characters above can be written into the
expression field of the query manager, too.
