[emboss-dev] GFF3 in EMBOSS

I am having a look at the GFF3 implementation in EMBOSS - mostly

All features are loaded into RAM, and also the sequence information,
when in the file. Not only for GFF3, but for all feature data types.

On regular desktops this is a problem when loading a larger set,
and/or multiple genomes.

Is it the idea to load big data and store it in a SQL database? I.e.
should I recommend handling it outside EMBOSS?
