Hm. You mean there is no sensible AnnotationI a generic
AnnotationDumper (like one dumping to GFF format) could be
satisfied with? I of course don't know the past experiences with
any attempts in this direction. (Does anyone have the BioJava
solution at hand? Is there a IDL definition [BioCorba, BSA, ...]
making an attempt at this?)
