Thanks. Patch applied to CVS. I appreciate you looking at the Martel
formats for blast -- these are not heavily integrated into Biopython
yet (the Bio.Blast parsers do not use them) so they don't get as
much checking as they need. If you find any other problems or have
any suggestions, please do let us know.

Thanks again.
