The current spin is set up for an older version of EMBOSS.
When the Staden package disappeared I was working on updating this - but
as I was updating the EMBOSS graphics to work better with SPIN it did
not need SPIN changes at the time.
Since that time, EMBOSS command line qualifiers have been "standardised"
- which means many have changed their names.
I have now volunteered to update the files for the next EMBOSS release -
they will probably be distributed with EMBOSS, but also committed to
SourceForge so there will be files in a future SPIN release too.
I will announce the availability on this list. Assume some time in April.
