Thanks for the heads-up, Chris. I guess I should
watch the biojava boards ;)

We'd really like to see GAME grow in usage. I'm
building a parser for bioperl. (I may just steal most
of Chris's code from the flybase project - we'll see).
The current state of GAME is still in a transitory
phase, though. I just posted my proposal for a newer,
simplified GAME version. Some of the changes were
ideas from Suzi and Chris and Erwin (the original
designers) and some are my own, so it remains to be
seen what their reactions will be. Of course Chris is
the one who writes the parsers for them - so he may be
the most important one.
At any rate, check out the new/old GAMEs. They're at
