Hi C...,

As embInitP is meant to be called just once, at startup, there is no
application in EMBOSS that required a destructor. We should have one, of
course, but there is rather more needed to properly cleanup and restore
the initial state of ACD processing..

It would help if you could explain a little more why you want to be a
little heretical and call embInit (or embInitP) more than once. One thing
I'm curious about is where the other commandlines are coming from :-)

I can think of some good use cases. We could use a code stub to check how
well we can cleanup.
