By the way:

I want to send this to EUtils:


but snp is not defined as a valid db in DBIds ... any fast solution?

where are the DBIds databases defined?

Interesting.  That isn't documented that I know about.  How did you
find out about it?

Okay, I'll add that to the EUtils v.2 package I announced here a
couple months ago.  Haven't gotten any feedback on it.  Anyone tried it?

Mmm, so the question is how to pass extra parameters from the NCBIDict
to the EUtils package.

I've been working on other projects since that preview release.  I'll
bump up the priority on it.
