Next year (release 87) the EMBL database plans to have a new ID line -
with no ID on it...

See June 2006 changes in

The primary accession number will be the only unique ID. The ID line will
also have the sequence version, so the SV line will disappear (but there
will still be a sequence version we can construct)

Should EMBOSS still index ID (using the accession number)? Should we
continue to use the ID from other databases that still do have ID and

There will be a file with the old IDs and the accession numbers they
relate to - should be use this to keep IDs in the index files?
