In Spin things are a little bit different than expected. Spin has a 2-stage
affair where sequences are firstly loaded into memory (either by direct file
access or remote access via emboss). From here sequences are manipulated
internally or new sequences can be created (ie rotations, translations,
scrambling, etc). It is the in-memory sequences which are then passed to
EMBOSS. Currently this is done by writing them out to a temporary file in a
known format (EMBL including with feature tables). We have the option to chose 
a start and end point, but they're the only options.

Hence most of the USA parts of EMBOSS are not needed by us except perhaps for
the initial File->Load option.
