Ok - I'll hold off the magic for the moment, but I think it would
be nice to have just-enough of SO in-built into Bioperl so one
could do something like:
$seqio = Bio::SeqIO->new( -file => "-", -format => 'EMBL', -feature_converter => 'SO');
and the "right thing" happens.
Does anyone want to propose an alt name to
But for that is it ok for me to implement and commit?
