[Bioperl-l] Phyloxml SeqI without actual sequence

So why would you create the sequence in the first place when it is  
empty? Shouldn't you just not create a sequence if there isn't one?  
Can you provide sample data so we understand better - maybe there is  
sequence name but no data?  Maybe we can specify an option to not  
warn when creating a sequence if a specific flag is provided to the  
Seq initialization routine.
