I think here is fine while it is just EMBOSS and BioPython, and I would 
like some feedback from others on what is most needed.

If it becomes a cross-openbio effort like FASTQ then we can move to the OBF 
lists to bring them in.

Heng Li asked us to look after format conversions to help take that load 
off samtools, but that still requires us to support SAM and BAM as fully as 
we can.
