[Biopython-dev] NCBI scripts now using e-utils

Hello everyone,

I've migrated all out libraries hitting NCBI (namely PubMed and
GenBank) to the new e-utils system.  This was necessary because
they're deprecating and removing the old scripts at the end of the
year.  The new stuff is supposed to be much more powerful, and support
more fancy queries such as restriction by date.  However, I cannot get
the date stuff on esearch.fcgi to work.  Has anyone had any experience
with this?
