'swissport' should be 'swissprot', though I get this script to work  
when spelled either way (well, I get some BLAST results back).  This  
error was, I believe, fixed in a recent version of Bioperl; I would  
upgrade from CVS.   However, the major problem I see is that the  
formatting from Bioperl is completely messed up now; it looks like  
the entire BLAST report is globbed together at the 'Query=' line.   
I'm sure this is an issue related to the recent blast changes at  
NCBI.  I'll look into this tomorrow.
