For EMBOSS 6.1.0 it should use -sformat refseqp (but will run without
warning after the patch).

For 6.0.1 all you can do is lie and change aa to bp.

We added the protein formats refseqp and genpept in release 6.1.0.
Previous releases warn about the 'aa' tag and continue.

You could run with -nowarning on the command line but we don't recommend
it :-)
