Not really what is needed. That Icarus script just runs getz for each
sequence and writes the results to stdout.

I have asked Thure several times for the SRS 4 capability to use a list
of entries as a query. Then you can do things like:

getz '@my.list > swissprot'
getz '@my.list' -f 'id acc des'
getz '@my.list ! (embl < emblnew)'

So far no sign of this appearing, though Thure promised it was not
difficult.  I really miss this capability. The lists can be created by
getz (they are the default output) but cannot be used since SRS 4 went
