I do not know if it has been discussed yet, but the GN (gene name) line
format recent versions of SwissProt files has been changed:

e.g. old:

GN   ZNF36 OR KOX18 OR ZNF139.


GN   Name=RCHY1; Synonyms=ZNF363, CHIMP, ARNIP;

This renders Bio::SeqIO::swiss unable to parse the GN line; as a
consequence, the resulting annotation object lacks the 'gene_name' key.
