Thanks for the script, I appreciate it. I was (am) trying to get the OBDA 
Bio::Registry to work for the platform independance it provides. I have 
had good success with biosql & load_seqdatabase, too, which you might want 
to try. You generally have to write a little module from the SeqProcessor 
class to handle FASTA IDs, but it's really nice to have things in mySQL.
